Win for the new skill system. Most of your USE advancement will be
with the subskill. A small part of it will go to the parent. This seems
to work well with the ways you think things should work.

We could require both USE and STUDY to advance a level, but this might
become annoying, it would be tricky with use-less skills, :-), and I'm
trying the cheap solution first. Although it has a certain appeal.
