While i totally agree on the need of an (optionally) colorable window frame 
(to separate windows and stress the active one) i must agree with Nuno on this 
The Ozone solution for this... "has a lot of space for visual improvement" (to 
avoid saying "is ugly")

The reason is that in difference to other "traditional" decos the coloring 
(tinting) looks entirely out-of-place.

(And as just bashing is bad):
I would suggest* a colored frame that connects to a colored "inlay" around the 
label - this way it'd be more like an accessoire - and less like a color bug.

If anyone wonders:
I ruled that out and changed it to a colored edge for bespin to not loose the 
visual gradient effect on the titlebar - but that's not the point here ;-)


*actually think I had suggested that to Nuno for Oxygen when the Ozone thing 
came up, but it just didn't match his vision
