Screenshots look cool! Thanks a lot!

BTW: can someone with CVS account add my color schemes to existing ones (from 
the archieve attached)?
it's just 4K compressed, so should be ok for kdelibs :-)

There are following themes/color schemes inside:

Blue Fantasy
Blue Gradient
Citrus Reverse
Diesel Blue
Diesel GreenBlue
Egypt Brown
Lime Reverse

Most of them IIRC (most of this stuff was finished in September 2001, so don't 
rememebr exactly) use gradients, so with should work nice with your patch and 

Pls let me know if you need short (verbose) story about each color theme.
KDE's COntrol Center doesn't allow any comments for color schemes - such a 
pity... may be, it should be placed in ## comments?

P.S. I believe Keramik should look nice with your patch and those colors.
