Thanks for taking this on Maria!

Agreeing with Duffy here, unnecessary comments like "soul consuming" are demotivating for designers and should be refrained from. It might be worth noting this in the wiki (will do that).

bar almost disappear visually which really doesn't work at all given
the special status it has. Is there any way we can either:

* Lighten up the background we have now so it's less black and
* Choose another background we can use for all spins
* Just use the existing awesome upstream GNOME artwork for the

I think we can see about lightening up the background slightly, to
