So I think we still have a technical problem about getting a list of skins the
server has available.  Would Ruper solve this?  The only other options I see are
to manually maintain a text file that lists all the files, or manually maintain
the skins descriptor to explicitly list version numbers.

Just to clarify, we don't need to bring up the issue of version compatibility
again; I think we've got that covered by our file naming format.
