The only thing bothering me is the "cap" over title bars. It is busy
and does not deliver any extra functionality. Perhaps if it had that
highlight on the bottom instead, which would make it easier to resize
windows. (Currently a difficult task with thin borders).
I do see the benefit of that cap to highlight the focused window, of
course. If it didn't obstruct the title text, for example just a thin
coloured border at the top, I would have less of a problem with it.

I always like seeing a theme that does away with the totally
unnecessary thick window borders, though :)
