	Screenshot 5 is nice for its colors and ability work on dark and bright
backgrounds alike. The 6.2 one is nice regarding the idea with the
wrench and different layout of stars to convey the different effects
levels. A mix of both approaches would be best.

	HIG-wise ccsm is a mess, no doubt there. But currently the best we
have. But right now I'm more in serious bug-hunting mode, than doing a
HIG-compliant ccsm replacement from scratch (design-wise).
