I agree 100%.  I just posted that pic as an example of the menubar and toolbars.

3.  If you want the lines gone you'll need to petition the gtk engine developers to allow me to add a patch to the clearlooks engine.  I'm running my altered version and the patch is transparent to the existing gtkrc's that already exist.  You have to just change the menubarstyle and toolbarstyle to a new option within the gtkrc.  I pinged them about adding my code to the engine, but received no response.  Guessing you want to see something more like this screenshot?  I can easily adjust the contrast of the menubar and toolbar gradients more or less.http://www.gnome-look.org/content/preview.php?preview=1&id=73163&file1=73163-1.jpg&file2=&file3=&name=clearlooks+hack Be careful with this though... I used a couple themes like this and while looking very handsome and distinct, its hard to tell where to grab in order to move the window and I was frequently grabbing the toolbar or the menu bar instead of the title bar. I'm not saying this patch is bad, it could work, but the title bar should have some trait that says "grab me - not the toolbar just below" to avoid doing a +1 for looks and a -10 for usability.-- Matthew Nuzumnewz2000 on freenode
