Just a humble drive-by comment here, and let me first point at that I am a 
developer, not a designer:

I'm wondering if the left-side tabs are taking too much prime real-estate on 
the page? I'm guessing many of our users are still on 1024x768 screens, and 
the tabbed menu steal much of the attention and space on the page. Contrast 
this with e.g. http://l10n.gnome.org/ where the black bar on top provides a 
non-intrusive way of jumping between applications (sadly, this theme is not 
followed through in other gnome sites though..). 

I think the point I'm trying to make is that the overall theme that the 
applications plug into shouldn't steal the attention or real-estate away from 
the real use of the page. Does this make sense?
