4.4 default look

the reason for the light themes, is that its easier on most peoples
eyes. i think we should stick with the default theme from svn, but
just darken it 1 or 2 shades, keep the old 4.4 layout with taskbar and
system tray on top, and panel with launchers and desk switcher on

for the wallpaper, i think something thats mainly the medium-light,
happy type of blue, but not pastel, with some orange in it would look
good. blue/green is easier on the eyes, but kinda boring without
colour. although having a way to set up 2-3 default variations, like
KDE's theme grouper option thing would be intresting...
