This is indeed a requirement. pmwiki uses the template file as
blueprint for the html, and there has to be just one .tmpl file in the
skin directory, the name of the file does not matter.
pmwiki also runs skinname.php or skin.php if it exists automatically.
any other php file needs to be called explicitly.
css files need to be called, usually from the template.
As the place where it (or they if there are several) be called may be
critical for the sequence of style rules loading, it is best left to
the skin author how to implement this.
