apparently running kde4 under locolor situations really sucks: 

"the graphical effects perish and we do not have nice fallbacks. This means 
that all scrollbars look like black blobs with some grey dots on them; the 
plasma palette is a grey dithered half-circle (it lights up nicely with the 
plasma icon when you hover over it, but the edges are still dodgy); taskbar 
items are similarly ugly in a dithered way."

since these gradients are not part of the style, it's not so easy to just 
say "change the style!"

i wonder if we can get away on this one without having to change dynamically 
during the application being run, and just either draw such gradients or not 
based on simple run time checks without dynamic updates?
