You can override  forrest.skins.descriptors in $HOME/forrest.properties or
the projects' forrest.properties to look in multiple locations (including
locally).  For example:

forrest.skins.descriptors=http://xml.apache.org/forrest/skins/skins.xml,file:///c:/Documents
and Settings/dbrondse/myskins/skins.xml
