Yeah the reddish brown looks much better. If you're trying to add more color
why not on the scroll bars. Orange would look much nicer than the dull grey
it is right now. Also, the selected items color can be an orange too. I've
set mine to *#FCB852* and the contrast with the dark titlebars and window
borders is quite nice.
