would be a big project but, 1 really worthwhile
have a test environment module that alows you to work on skin updates or creation, design alterations, layput changes etc etc in a test environment either as a /test/ folder or test.domain subdomain (but still uses live sites /data/ to avoid unnecessary data duplication) that way you can work on an entire site redesign is a simulated live environment, then simply publish it as a skin and mark it active. i know you have a whole developer thing for how to do it on your pc then publish it through ssh, but it would be alot more user friendly to simply have a shadow copy in a test environment to work on within the admin site and publish from there'
