 You're referring to patched versions of the skins (or arranging patch-phase
 patches to elide the offending extensions in the skin config files), right?
 Your statement implies that doing so will allow them to load, even if
 they don't function quite as intended?  (I'm still updating packages and

 executable afterwards (pending an official release from upstream)?
