As you might have noticed I was talking about "keramik as in kdelibs 
out-of-the-box". Your screenshot also has the keramik windows decoration 
enabled (which is in kdebase) and uses a different color-scheme.

I always thought "default" refers to the values as provided by the system 
without changing anything (which is how I arrived at my first screenshot). 
Seems I misunderstood ;-)

I have to admit that that looks better than what I arrived at. You also seem 
to have a different crystal konqueror icon which is way better than the 
default one provided by crystal.

You are using a background image for kicker, right? Which one? Without it 
kicker looks inconsistently 2D, too.

No, I did not. It didn't sound like the appearance was going to change a lot 
anymore. More like "there are still some bugs that are going to be fixed 
after it's the default". 

Maybe there should be a complete keramik-theme that changes all required 
things (style, icons, window decoration).
