jess - i think that's really a shame.. and we are lacking in ui-design people. (im not the admin no more but i still think you should stay around.) also, i think suggestions that include patches over the kits (meaning just writing more preference apps) are possible in r1 (though this is only my opinion..) - this means that if we convince (or write ourselves?) people to include a theme manager (that could as easily run on beos5.0.3) we could add new features.. about coloring, im not sure.. but atleast Tab color replacement... i again ask you to stay. if i may.. guy.
