That's nice, but I just find it quite disappointing that we lose this 
"all-in-one" effect for the menu bar and task bar on inactive windows. 
We really should ask -- or write -- a patch for Metacity to have 
different menu bars on inactive and active windows, to keep this "solid" 

But except that, I'm everyday a little more confident in this theme, it 
looks really nice and clean.


PS: I'll finish the monochromic icons for the taskbar tomorrow (no time 
for yesterday neither today).
