I know this has gone round and round. However, I'm going to argue the
opposite way. The default skin for the installation should really be
the simplest set of elements of all, the minimum needed to get a site
functional. Many of the more whizzy and advanced skins create
implementation requirements which may not be what the new user wants.
As an implementer, I much prefer to design my own skins anyway.

The collection of skins in the Cookbook is the place to point people
into looking for skins that fit their needs more.

As for the pmwiki.org *site* -- that could use a face-lift, possibly.
But as it's Pm's site, I would leave that up to him.
