Comment (by pulkomandy):

 Looking at Windows 8 I'd say the modern trend is towards adding more
 colors. Moreover, the change to the border color is extending an existing
 color to more parts of the screen. On the other hand the other changes
 proposed here introduce entirely new colors, which I think can be
 considered even worse as far as good taste goes. But continuing to use
 greyscales only is cheating.

 I find the different border color helpful as a focus-follow-mouse user as
 it helps me quickly identifying overlapping windows. But I agree that it
 is less useful for the other focus modes which always have the focused
 window frontmost.

 So, let's keep that separate and start with the changes everyone agrees
 on: success/failure, and the list selection highlight.
