I might have misunderstood the purpose of the SkinTest group. Now I see 
that it was probably intended as a group to keep pages in which are like 
unit tests for skins. Is that it?

My idea was simply that 


would be interpreted as something like


in order to make it "prettier" when demonstrating. (Actually, 
'?setskin=...' should perhaps be something else, if you don't want the 
skin choice to stick).

As I said, I'm not sure if it makes sense... the one advantage I can see 
is that it might be easier for less experienced users to try out different 
skins if the URI easily identifies what skin they are using?
