I really appreciate your efforts in simplifying skinning.
In CMF things are very easy to understand, because a layer is simply a
folder. I can explain that in five minutes to a template programmer.
Maybe this sounds a bit NAIVE, but would it be possible to make it like
Use case: Integrate an existing application into my Web site, e.g. a forum.
1. Create a folder for the customized forum skin
$ mkdir forum-skin
2. Register this folder
3. Customize everything from original forum skin
$ cd forum-skin
$ cp $ORIGINAL_FORUM_SKIN/*.pt .
$ vi *
This is oversimplified, I know :)
Another note: when I see this I feel a cold shudder:
Quite a lot of typing for one GIF!?
Just my two cents.
