I don't agree. I'm not only planning to automagically change the skin, 
I'm going to lock it so that the users can't change back. I want any 
pain to be in one swift lump. I do *NOT* want to deal with it later when 
the 'classic' or 'legacy' skin is finally removed entirely and I've got 
users' prefs specifying a nonexistent skin.
