My understanding of PlonePAS was that is was a "canned setup" for a PAS
instance.  I didn't realize that it provided additional skins as well,
and in fact I don't know why it would do that.

If you add a 'session_auth' plugin to your PAS, but *name* it
'credentials_cookie_auth' (having moved the real one aside), do the
skins work?  You will of course need to register the plugin in the
appropriate places, and unregister the cookie one.
