XFWM Theme - Firstlight - Grabbable Borders!

I've been working on this simple theme for some time and finally have a four versions put together and up on Sourceforge:


The theme is meant to be simple, clear and unambiguous in use - the kind of theme that might turn up as a default perhaps. A key goal was to make a theme without window resize issues, so I have made the borders 7px thick. The theme is designed to fit my laptop screen which is 1440x900. There aren't any larger versions for hi-res screens. The control buttons are Fitts' compliant so to close a maximised window just flick your cursor to the top right and click. I have not made any rollup or stick buttons because I don't use them.

The Graphite, Blue and Rose versions work well with the standard Greybird GTK theme. The Dark version should fit with most dark themes though it goes well with Greybird, and my favourite at the moment, Classiclooks Ambiance.

If you can please give them a try and let me know what you think. The file is here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/firstlight/files/ I have been using the Dark variant for several months and haven't felt the need to try other themes since. I feel quite satisfied with the clarity and usability, but would be interested to see what others think, and if anyone finds bugs and errors I'd love hear about them.  :smiley:

Here's my machine with the Dark Variant:
