Technically, it's not a MediaWiki skin. It could become one, but that
would require changes in MediaWiki itself, and we all know how long
that takes. There are intermediary solutions, but they'd be ugly, like
loading each page in a "normal" skin, then rearranging it via
JavaScript, which causes a flickering "jump" on each page load. For
the moment, toolserver it is.
