Right, think I'm about done with this now. This is how I, potentially at
least, see the Ubuntu Studio Oneiric desktop. PLEASE NOTE: this isn't
prescriptive, I'm not saying, "This is DEFINITELY how the desktop should
look, GET ON IT", I'm saying, in terms of an overarching look and feel,
perhaps something like this is the way forward.

By all means, give me your opinions and whatnot.
