Thanks.  I know there's good stuff in there begging to be used.

Unfortunately, I just had a slightly disappointing experience.  I
entered an invalid URL and got a 404 error based on the Rotterdam skin.
 Ugh!  IMHO, the Rotterdam skin is an example of something Zope 3 does
badly.  I don't want the Rotterdam skin to exist in my site.  What is
the best way to remove it?  I hackishly changed some ZCML, but is there
a maintainable way?
