Yeah, yeah, I'm old too you know :) 

Anyway, the more general idea is that I kinda feel it's a useless
feature to have these two styles. Especially now that there are items
that don't have popup buttons, so they will look odd in traditional

BTW, the popup buttons are named, so you can still give them a different
color in a theme.
