Red with purple hat band and feather would be nice too....

The only reason I see for changing it would be "just for fun", which I 
think is sort of a Linus Torvalds* */Linux way of thinking, and I like

An easily customizable choice, link the "properties" button when right 
clicking panel launcher icons would be wonderful.... then we could all 
have a new hat every week if we wanted it.
