BTW, I don't think it's helpful to apply to `const' to `skel_t'
arguments. A skel is a tree, not a single node or array of nodes. So
a `const skel_t *' argument doesn't mean "I won't modify this tree",
which is what one really wants to say; it means "I won't modify the
top skel of this tree, but I might munge any of the other skels it
points to," which is useless.
