In favor of a separate Skins group. Possibly either Skins, or maybe 
PmSkins. In general Skins are different to Cookbooks. Skins affect UI, 
cookbooks provide functionality. I can see some lengthy arguments that 
skins also provide functionality, but across the web, we've settled on 
separate skins and some sort of cookbook/module terminology.

Not in favor of this. Why not handle languages with categories?

Also not in favor. Number of groups is just going to get exponentially 
large, and likely psychologically confusing to users... to what benefit, 
over categories?
