I'll just comment on that. I used to do the same thing with WindowShade 
under BeOS. Some may say, it's too much of that yellow, keep the yellow 
tabs as the distinguishing Haiku look, but leave it at that. I can 
agree with that.
OTOH, colouring the active window's border has the advantage that you 
immediately see which window is active, regardless if it's tab was 
moved out of the screen. Question is: is that really often the case? 
Now with Haiku we even have snapping screen borders, it's not that easy 
anymore to push things out accidentally.
