Skinconfig should is not used in Templates (Views) + Themes. More info 
by searching the archives for "per plugin config" and other such 
threads. Basically we want to be able to configure page display on a per 
page or per directory basis. Hence the ability to override the *.fv files.

In other words, the PDF page should only be generated when there is a 
link to it in the site itself.

So if we have a default Template (was View) that turns on the PDF link 
but we have a special page called "noPDF.html" which overrides the 
default and turns off the PDF link then PDF should be generated for all 
pages *except* the "noPDF" page.
