So the whole problem is in devloping a skin?   Just do as the docs recommend
then, turn on dynamic publishing/no caching while editing your theme, then
turn it back on.

Or link them to files, or edit statically, commit when done.


I like the method, I serve normal files all static.  As if my stuff gets
read enough to even care about being dynamic.  Anything I'm editing is
dynamic, only I see it as such.  Life is good, and I haven't even bothered
setting up mod_perl rendering or fun stuff like that.
