That can't work. sbs is independent of themes. But the UI viewport is
not part of the sbs at all. And the WPS cannot draw where it likes,
since the default viewport is always active (and maximized).

Using the UI vp for skins is mixing parts which simply do not belong

/me wonders why JdGordon sees problems when there's none.

Best regards.
