Well, personally I consider the idea of having a skin-port somewhat
insane (do we have a mozilla-themes port??), but it seemed that an
out-of-the-box-installation for the graphical frontend was what many
users want.
For some time I've been thinking that it would be best to just remove
the skins port and let the users download the skin they want to install
in ~. (I don't use that gui at all, but that might differ from user
to user...)
The problem with the default skin is known and will be fixed as soon as
ports freeze allows.
But what about the port in general? Voices?
