It's understandable that you prefer Classic at this point, as the visual
clash between the new button_draw function and the rest isn't so visible
here. As for the colours and roundness - seems like Modern works
slightly better with darker colours than Classic, so I've switched
Nodoka-{Midnight,Silver} to Modern and use the Silver one as a
reference; and for Rounded themes, Glossy works best, so I switched
Nodoka-Rounded to it and increased the roundness to be same as in the
sketches Andy provided.

Indeed, my intention with Modern is to look a little metal-like, also
the metallic colour would less clash with the KDE4's oxygen theme, but
it can be used with more bright colours as well (and probably also will
in the future).

Once the coding on engine is more or less finished (and that will take a
long time still), I (or anyone else who volunteer to do the job) will
make the final themes, until then, they serve as a reference and for
testing the engine ;-)

At this point of the development process I expect comments/suggestions
mostly on the new button drawing function (and when I upgrade other
widgets, on them as well) or at the sketches and still waiting for the
final sketches of the Glossy one (still missing some widgets design).


PS: Heh, now that I think of it, the Mozilla Modern theme sort of had
similar feel indeed, though I hope the Nodoka Modern style will
represent the word "Modern" better than the Mozilla Modern theme would
if used now.
