If we implement this workaround, then i reckon that the default
should be "true". It would be easier to explain the "false" case
and it would be a smaller number of people affected.

However, it forces them to change their filename extensions.
That would be difficult for the main use-case, which is to include
a set of existing *.html docs as part of the site.

The thread "RT: RAW content" that is linked from issue FOR-505
ended with an interesting idea about using site.xml to specify
exclude/include patterns.
It seems to be independent from the "locationmap" ideas discussed
earlier in that thread. Would that be better to implement now,
rather than the skinHTMLSources=true workaround?
