Note that I didn't say I wanted to see skinning because I need it or use it.
I simply said that skinnable interfaces would attract a certain, and I
believe large, segment of the population.  Looking at the popularity of
NeoPlanet, WinAmp, KDE, Enlightenment, et al, it appears that people want
that kind of functionality.

Given the ease-of-use of the Jabber client libraries, I'll bet hard currency
that *someone* is going to write a skinnable client.
