It's not a skin like a Mozilla-skin; it's more of a subset. The way I
envision it is to simply .zip your components together. When your friend
receives the .zip, he makes a folder inside his profile directory called
gopherchrome and puts the contents of the .zip in there. Look at


for exactly how this works. If you have a skin for submission, I can put it
on the Overbite site for others to download (the only restrictions is that
it must appear under Tri-License, and that the work be freely distributable).
