situation with window decorations

in the meanwhile I've been working on coding Thomas idea for an ozone 
active window blue frame replacement
in my private version of the Nitrogen windeco.

I put a bunch of screenshots here (with left/right and center title 
alignment, as well as with normal/tiny/no frame border).
Comments would be highly appreciated.

You'll note that the original "radial" glow from Thomas is gone, and has 
been replaced by something which look more oxygen-like, (I personnaly 
find Thomas gradients a bit too "plastik" like to my taste), with a drop 
shadow. In fact it uses the exact same code as the one used by oxygen to 
make push buttons, combo-boxes, etc.

Comments are highly appreciated !
(notably: would that be a decent replacement for the all-blue ozone 
active window frame ?)
