Skip the card under review
When you review a difficult card, with this skip the card option, you skip it temporarily, not let it block the way to review other cards, just as you can skip some tricky questions in an exam and go back later.
In my experience, thinking of the answer of a difficult card is time-consuming. But if we can skip it and go back later, the answer usually spring up, due to our magical brains in recalling.
The function has been implemented on Mnemododo. Why not implement it on Mnemosyne 2.x?

Very useful function!
Why does someone skip a card? Well, I have some cards that are highly technical and might require a calculator and/or paper to determine the answer. It's not always convenient to do the calculation, and I would prefer to be able to defer to the end of the day's cards, or even to deter to the next day.
I feel that if this where to be implemented, it should be so as a plugin so that the user interface remains uncluttered by default.
Why does someone skip a card?!? Another reason might be: the question or answer is not ideal,... therefore those cards might have to be edited. I'd like to mark those cards as "skipped" and rate them as "skipped x times".

Another good use for "Skip this card" is if two cards are related or close in meaning, thus answering the second card is unnaturally easy. I would like to skip the second one rather than give it an artifically high grade.
