On first appearance this is pretty disonant. When a design needs
explanation such as this does, something's awry. I like your curved sliders
alot, as the tips interlock with the ends. There is something innately
satisfying about this.
Why not strike a good compromise, one that perhaps Cairo can offer.
Instead of complete right-angles, go for a much tighter curve on the
corners. Show off the antialising with tight and clean curves.
