Many skin designers will want to include extras with thier skins. Things like
icons, A matching splash screen, or even a matching desktop theme, along with
install directions. Package designers want to add a zipped file of XUL changes.
Adding an options directory would give them a standard place for the extra
goodies. This would be chrome/skins/skin-name/options. For Modern and Classic
this would only contain a text file stating the purpose of the directory.

Designers will be adding extras. Different designers will add them in different
places if there isn't a standard location. An options folder will insure that
users won't have to look for them like Easter Eggs.

'options' sounds like the name of a folder that would contain settings or 
preferences (to me, at least). confirming for evaluation from ben
