OK. We can always switch. I have a mantra: "If it works now, then use
it". This means to never hold out for something that might be better
in the future, because it aint gonna happen. :)

I have never adapted a design for Plone (or even CPS for that matter)
so I have no idea what kind of effort is involved. I have heard evil
things though. :-) Maybe we can start a product to hold the skins
somewhere, so several people can work on different bits of it?

So, is there a reason NOT to use it? And if there is, is there a
reason not to use it temporarily. Pointing it there now, and switching
to a script based system in a couple of weeks, would be much better
than just switching in a couple of weeks, imo.
