[ubuntu-art] Whats Up with This?

Even though the New Human theme may not make it into 8.10, I am interested
in seeing a specific color combination which is lighter but still uses New
Human's GTK and Metacity.

I have tried to put in these colors in New Human, but the output was
inconsistent since New Human is still a work in progress. I have therefore
chosen -

GTK - Human Murrine
Metacity - X Colors Lite (don't rmr where I got this from. Probably from
clearlooks colors or murrine colors from gnome-look.org)
Icons - Gion
Fonts - Droid Sans

The links below show a theme that is currently running on my box (Hardy).
All I did was change a few colors.

Do take a look at all the screenshots and let me know if you think this is a
good direction to think about. Note that I have no idea whatsoever regarding
UI or the colors that people like. Never touched Photoshop / Gimp and
probably never will. However, the colors in this theme appealed to me. Let
me know if they appeal to you too :)
