I stole the aurora background from Mac OS X.5. I figured it was
specifically chosen to have stuff on top of it so it should look good
and I was right. I can't get the OSD font to load correctly and I
suspect not all the fonts are leading right in the theme itself
because some of the stuff looks a little weird. One I get that sorted
out, I think it would be quite nice.
