As you can tell, I've been having to give all my attention to the real
world for too long... ;-)

Yeah, plus the skin development pages don't mention what they do.

I'm too ignorant on how the translations work to have good-quality
ideas, so I'll leave it up to the people who translate things. :)

Yeah, I'd been thinking that I should do that. Then I'd find out how
much work it is (or isn't) to set that up. I'm not sure if people
will publish skins which do it that way, though. It would depend on
how hard it is to write and setup, both for the developer and the wiki
admin on the other end. (Note: it gets harder when you need to unzip
things into several different directories, because it can't be done
automatically for all configurations.)
