As Luciano already said: This also doesn't work at all with any non-KDE
apps out there and thus the whole desktop gets inconsistent. Thats

Ok, that part wasn't about the different inactive palette, it was about
there being _no_ other indication except the window-switching-popup,
i.e. a bug in the kwin-style.

What effect? There is no effect from kwin when you make a window active,
except the one you recently implemented. That coupled with the above (no
black/white bar around windows) makes window switching extremely hard.
