Hi David,

I agree it would be nice to have a standardized Skeleton message.  If 
all skeleton's are trees (is this true?) then perhaps an existing tree 
message type could be used if it exists.  KDL has kinematic chains and 
tf is already built around trees (right?).  That's about as far as I've 
thought it through...
