The primary bit of misfortune about our skel library is that it isn't
conducive to piecemeal generation of skel-string output. You can't really
say "print a string that contains a list opener" and then "print the
following N list items" and then "print the list closure". Obviously, this
speaks merely to the immaturity of the library (and a bit to its use thus
far only for relatively small pieces of information), so "it's a simple
matter of programming" to fix. :-)
