You can easily reuse some of bits out of the CMF into component bits if
you want. For example I wrote a product that just uses the skins
component of CMFCore, so that when you add this folderish product, it
adds a few skins in.
The user can then skin the product as they see fit. It worked out pretty
well and didnt take long to write.
