That's all just border widths and colors and shadowing.  I bet one could 
make the unlock dialog look very much like a gtk window with some work. 
  Of course, that would would have to be repeated for every gtk theme, 
which sucks.

I'd suggest not using gtk for the widget handling, but instead just 
manually paint stuff using gtk's drawing functions, but sadly gtk theme 
engines are generally the worst offenders when it comes to making gtk
