That's interesting. Although, conceptually, the menu-bar is much closer
to the tool-bar than to the title-bar.

Promising. Round wm-buttons move it towards Apple, though, I'd say, as
much as I dislike worrying about that :)

The shading of the trough looks a bit like an overdose of ambient
occlusion. I think you would do better with thinner shadows on the
sides. The idea of letting the bar run out on the ends is an interesting
touch. The slider looks like it is offset to the left from the middle.
