This is more a question for the pstricks mailinglist. Although Herbert might be reading this too...
I have whipped up something using pgf/tikz. Here is what I have so far.

\tikzstyle{pdboxstyle}=[text width=0.83\slidewidth,text ragged, draw, rectangle, rounded corners] %
\draw (0,0) node [style=pdboxstyle, fill=yellow!30, name=header, #1]
\bgroup \textit{\textbf{Proof.}} %
\egroup ;

One main issue still needs to be dealt with: The width of 0.83\slidewidth is kind of adhoc. This should be the width normally used for typesetting data. Which counter should I use here? Ideally it should work in single column as well as two column mode.
