It would not benefit this use case to keep that old
forrest-site skin. Sure we will provide a couple of
base skins for serious developers. For normal people
the skins are going to be very configurable so that they
do not need to develop anything.

The old forrest-site skin is going away, either soon
or in a short while.

We will get around to that, but it is not a priority
at the moment.
