I think it was a discussion between me and Jim during a sprint. ;-) We noticed 
that skins certainly would not make sense for FTP. When I implemented 
XML-RPC, we did not think it was necessary there either, because XML-RPC 
represents an API, not a UI.

I just want to hear at least one use case why this is needed. I still cannot 
see it.
