lookAndFeel changes

first i would thank you guys for the wonderfull new progress bar. but why do you select this ugly, dark color for the new primary color. why don't you use a "sunny" color(example: r=241,g=240,b=227) as primary color???

An idea here would be to allow the users to change the colors of the look and feel in the IDE Settings. Thus you could choose the colors you like the most in your current mood.
It shouldn't be to complicated to implement this if the colors aren't hard coded in all those UI delegates. It should work in a similiar way as the metal themes in SwingSet work.

But this is only cosmetics and one of the least important things.

It must be somewhat important because the IntelliJ team keeps changing it.

It's starting to look more and more like what I think Windows XP will look
like. (I'm hoping I'll never find out what Windows XP looks like :)

I guess by the end of the EAP cycle it will look very much like Windows XP.
