Hi, I agree that the lighter top does not look nice compared to the rest 
of the theme, but I can also see where Steve is coming from. Could 
something in between be an option? like fading in to the lighter color 
om something like that, I made a fast gimp from Philips's screenshot for 
an example:, something like this might 
be a good solution to keep everything smooth and clean but not confuse
