Agreed, however, I was following Lasse Havelund's mockup here:
Should I abandon the background and instead keep the reflections? Or,
should I remove the reflections?

I'm slightly inclined to abandon the background as keeping it would
make the grub loader more ubuntu 9.10 specific, however, on the other
hand, I know a lot of people are looking for a unified bootloader,
loading, login screen.
