You know, the thing that a great many girls have in common may be not
any particular decorative scheme, but the desire to customize.  Look
at the (physical, paper) notebooks they carry in school; they may have
drawn on unicorns or pasted photos of their friends or wrapped it in
aluminum foil or glued on origami swans, but they've almost always

So maybe one good way to add girl appeal is to make it really, really
obvious how they can customize their systems' look.
