I just submitted it, number 1717886: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/ 

Actually all that is needed is the addition of a forward-search.sh  
file with contents the following two lines:

"${0/forward-search.sh/displayline}" "$1" "$3" "$2"

This will not break compatibility with any previous version of Skim.  
displayline will still continue to work the same way.
