For the record, I disagree with this (and so does my book).
I think browse views are vastly superior to skin layer templates,
because they give you a sensible place to put view logic. Last I
checked, they do cache in CacheFu as well.
Viewlets have to be done with Z3 resources. Portlet renderers too.
Style sheets and images don't, and people may prefer skin layers. I
prefer to have a well-defined namespace (the ++resource++ prefix) and to
follow along the same paradigm as the above three.
That said, unifying the customisation and configuration story here would
be an enormous win.
