I would remove it, as the newly named krysalis-site _is_ forrest-site++.

Avalon tigris was done when Avalon wanted the tigris skin, but not

comes from the tigris distro without changing it. avalon-tigris is not 
used anymore by Avalon, and should be deleted in favor of the new tigris

The aliasing must also be introduced in the skinconf loader IIRC.
