THIS IS USABLE BUT IT WILL CHANGE FREQUENTLY AS I REFINE IT!

I decided to revamp pico gray, which has been in BETA for quite some time. I've been using pico gray for quite awhile, little things bothered me:

o min/max/close buttons fuzzy depending on caption color
o tabs were too bright
o highlight had too much gradient
o start panel too boring
o no name on start panel (i use several accounts when programming)
o task bar didn't highlight active window
o flash button not always readable (when using chat apps)
... and more

I'm concentrating on the Ubuntu flavor for now. Expect other subs (luna blue, black, xbox) like the other pico series.

[01]

+ trying different gloss and colors
* made some controls flatter
* changed a few higlights to be simpler

[02]
* shiny instead of 'bumpy' gloss on title bars, start panel
* fixed account name vertical positioning
* colored min-squares on windows, winflag

[03]
* set buttons back to default look
* slightly cleaner start panel

[04]
* combo boxes
+ added small scrollbar thumbs
* flattened spinner controls

[05]
* combo box glyph, border
* progress bar chunk color
* increased contrast of inactive window min/max/close and title text
* other tweaks to make disable colors more consistent

[06]
* reduced all borders by 3 px
* changed start panel, i thought it was a little too busy
* MDI windows consistent with main window but not same color (i hate how visual styles use the same active title bar for the main and active mdi child window)

and i'm sure little tweaks i don't remember. let me know if you like old start panel better

[07]

transparent sub preview. opaque styles will be in final version.

* new border
* partly transparent panel
* transparent window borders
