Yes, I had already done that for myself to spare me some typing.

I ended up using Katskin as a base now, it's quite good !
Liked the fact that it optionally automatically lists the Groups in the menu
plus it has the breadcrumbs in the spot I want them to be, and it hides
the wiki-actions to the normal viewer ( CMS mode ).

Any quick idea on how to remove the pagename as a header for each page?
I'll have headers in pages to be custom and different for this site,
different from the URL/autocreated name.

Starting to really love pmwiki. Been working on it for two days straight !
