[Digikam-devel] visual indication of active filters?

as a follow-up to the new LED introduced by Gilles to
indicate that one of the filters (rating,
quick text filter, or file) is active.

While this is nice, I have the impression that this
is not yet visually "intrusive" enough, i.e. it still
could be overlooked.

A clearer indication might be to  change e.g.
a) the color of the background of the filters in the status line
b) the color of the background in the icon view
c) for an active tags-filter (right side-bar), the background
   of the TAB (both in folded and expanded view) should be
(e.g. to red in all cases).

All these are, according to Gilles, very easy
to realize with KDE4... (but not with KDE3).

What do you think about this? (Worth an entry in the BKO?)

Best, Arnd
