IIRC, at the moment, it is impossible to do this in an access rule, g=
its pre-traversal nature?  Is this correct?

It's something I promised Alex I'd do, but haven't had time yet.  It'=
the ability to give different default skins depending on role, as a
site-wide policy.  (e.g. "managers" get the "manager" skin, etc)  It
would take the form of a tab on the skins tool, probably, offering th=
ability to map roles to skins.  It could even be generalised to an
expression / guard instead of a role but I suspect YAGNI.

I foresee no compatibility problems as undefined mappings would fall
back to the current 'default skin' value.

At any rate there's no way I have time to do it this week, so it's
unlikely to make it to 1.4.
