Hehe, no. :)

Ideally I would like to see both, but the site-wide thing is the one that
should make most sense to implement on the CMF level. It's also the one I
really miss all the time.
The other one we could add as a functionality of PloneFolder if we need it
for a project later - but the site-wide permissions really belong in the
Speaking of wishes, another one that I talked to Seb Bacon and Kapil about
is skin-binding to particular roles, I believe he made a quick and dirty
prototype, but it never progressed beyond that because of where the skin
bindings happen in the traversal part, IIRC. They can probably explain it
The idea is that when I log in as a user with Manager role, I will get a
skin set that is different than the ordinary Members get when they log in,
and Anonymous can have a third skin, if desirable.
The ability to configure a list of three-four skins that are available to
the Manager but not to anybody else is also a part of this proposal. This
way, you can easily see how your public site looks like - while still
managing your content from a CMF or Plone default interface.
We can do this already, but it involves binding the skins via
virtualhosts, and is less than ideal. I would like to see this as a core
part of the CMF, I think most people would find it useful.
There's my Christmas wishlist - and I'm willing to pony up some money to
get it too ;)
