Sorry for late reply...

I really think this one contains some quality material, albeit I am not
certain that it is possible to implement as a real theme.

 1) The (almost) monochrome icons in the panel work really well. The most
controversial here is probably the dark Ubuntu logo. However I personally
think it looks more professional and stylish than the normal orange
incarnation. We should really consider this (and lobby sabdfl to allow it).

 2) Smooth texture. I don't know if we can implement that smooth gradient
going from the window frame through the menu and toolbar. It might be
possible to make it look good in Nautilus, but then other apps will likely
break it. One breakage and it appears amateurish. We should experiment with
this - maybe with support from the theme engine. I will try it out if I can
find the time.

 3) What I would like to see in
a lot more of the widgets mocked up. Text entries, scrollbar, combo
boxes. Can you do that?
