If it's limited to 3-4 pages or groups then simply a per-page or
per-group customization file would be the preferred.  If there are
more than that then it would probably be better in a simple
conditional in your config.php:

$pagename = ResolvePageName($pagename);
if (in_array($pagename, array('GroupA.PageA', 'GroupB.PageB', [...])))
   $Skin = 'myskin';
   $Skin = 'otherskin';

Be aware that ResolvePageName() implicitly calls some functions which
do caching, so this should be late in your config.php.  Obviously
there are other ways to do the conditional besides in_array
(preg_match with an array of REs comes to mind if they fit patterns)
but presumably you've already got that figured out...
