Yeah, I need to tune those a little bit. I haven't spent much time on  
them. I'll see if I can lighten it up a little.

I personally kind of like the rounding, though! But the window frame  
itself is too rounded, I would say.

Well, I'll see if I can make it a little more dim. You're right that  
this is a little bothersome. I don't think that we should attempt to  
make it look like it can last for years, though. I can't fathom the  
skin not needing minor tweaks with every next release.

Yeah, I'll see if I can do something there too. Maybe make it a  
little brighter. Although grey is, of course, a very good color for  
beveling things and distinguishing from white. There are very, very  
few colors (in my opinion) that can be properly used as GTK  
background color.
