Thanks for the responses, everyone. I'm still not sure which direction I'm going to go. I just recently found an "artist's conception" for Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex's new theme that gave me some inspiration. I may go with colors similar to that.

I don't know how different they are, but I'd be willing to give it a try either way.

Xable just split up his "High Priority Light Update Pack". I always just integrated his pack (as it was), and also added your BareWGA Addon. Now, his WGA Addons are separated.

He's got 2 different addons, as you can see here: LINK

So, should I use yours, his, or both of them together? :?
