 Hi Gilles,
   I had a long answer to your question typed out, but after speaking 
with the other developers I believe we've found a solution to this problem.
   Currently the primary layout file dictates the look and feel of your 
site (articles.rhtml) , this file is sprinkled with partials that 
contain basic markup
   to support whatever they contain.  By creating a new 
myarticles.rhtml, etc you can easily change the look of your site and 
you can also svn up without
   breaking anything.

  This hasn't been implemented yet, but be aware that it is being 
discussed and we are working on this!
