Note that having a header in a skin is not at all the same as
what GroupHeader does. For one, skin components are processed
*after* the main page contents, while a GroupHeader page is
added to the main page contents before it is processed.
Second, a page that is loaded via <!--wiki:...--> in a page
template is processed as if it were a standalone page, and all
internal link and page variable references are relative to
The GroupHeader page (and presumably its site-wide counterpart)
is processed as if it is an integral part of the main page's contents.
