I created $SkinLibDirs so that skin directories wouldn't be
limited to ./pub/skins/ and $FarmD/pub/skins/ .  Adding $SkinLibDirs 
had absolutely nothing to do with splitting up a skin's files 
into separate directories.

But ultimately I haven't figured out what problem the "continue
scanning other skin directories" approach you're advocating
is intending to solve.
