I'm now subscribed to ubuntu-art, which I should have done that
earlier, but I guess better late than never. I hope replying works
fine, without starting a new thread.

The progressbar looks okay to me. It's kind of plain, but it makes
white text more readable, which is a good thing. The color seems to
match the other widgets more, so that's a plus as well.

Now before we implement it, I'd like Mark's approvement. The
progressbar was modelled after an icon the Human icon theme and Mark
really liked that. I think he'll approve with bvc's version too
though, but I don't want to make such "big" changes so close to
release without making sure he's fine with it.
