I have to say "maybe" for me. I like the idea, but I can also see
problems with it.

I think either of the first two would be best.

As someone else said, having a "skins" directory would probably be good

No, I expect they'd have to do it for each recipe they're interested in.

Agreed, this is tricky.
The simplest case would be recipes which consist of only one .php file.
But there are other recipes (and skins of course) which consist of
multiple files in multiple directories, and people are used to being
able to download a single .zip file for such recipes.
I'm not sure how to solve that one.
