Thanks Aurélien for the nice mockup! I agree with Stefan and will take care to 
improve this. I'm not sure how easy it is to implement the drawing of the 
sunken frame of the second mockup... I'll give it a try, if it is not possible 
to draw the sunken frame without hacks I'll use the proposal shown in the 
first mockup.
