More ideas. Merged the menubar and metacity.

For example all these glossy effects. I think I'm not the only one who feels, glossy effects are a litle outdated, nothing fresh anymore. But maybe it's far to early to say so.

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 http://guentherbeyer.de/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/ubuntu_804_theme_test_04_2.png is a lot more of the widgets mocked up. Text entries, scrollbar, combo boxes. Can you do that?
