looks fine to me, though still reliant on Compiz, which means it can't
be relied on on several kinds of machine.

i see you still have the min/max/close icons visible on the inactive
windows. to make it more like the original New Wave, perhaps it'd be
better to remove them? 

in this way you're adding one more visual clue that the window is
inactive (beyond title colour and shadowing).
