I've often wanted to disable certain features in our skins, but never 
found the time to do it. The diffs between your work and pelt will 
clearly indicate where the code is that should be disabled for various 
features. With the use of some extra skin config and <xsl:if > elements 
those with a strong enough itch should be able to add at least some of 
your changes into pelt.

I agree with your conclusion. If you are still willing please add your 
skin to an issue, if possible add a few notes about the major changes 
you made (in terms of functionality, i.e. added an image to tabs, people 
can look at the code to see how)

Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank you and your company for 
your offer to donate your excellent work on this skin, it is very much 
appreciated by the community.
