Yes, I agree, and I think Thorsten does too. Remember, *I* suggested it 
should be in the f:t, but Thorsten said he already did it in the skin.


Plugin designers will say, "this plugin creates a nugget X, and I want 
it inserting at extension point Y".

All the user need do is say I want plugin X, the skinning system then 
ensures the nugget from plugin X is inserted in a sensible place.

If we all understand one another correctly, this is what we all want :-)).
