It sounds to me like you're trying to have SkinScript supply a
bobo_traverse for the Specialist itself, and this you cannot do. (There
are other ways to change a Specialist's bobo_traverse behavior, but
SkinScript is not one of them.) The SkinScript you're doing is meaningful
only if you want to go to specialist/skin1/something, in which case your
traversal_method should be called to process "something".
I don't have the slightest idea what you're trying to accomplish here - I
probably missed the beginning of this thread. Do you want to change the
way the specialist processes the string "dataskin1", or the way dataskin1
processes the URL component that comes next? Each requires a different
