Sure, and I'm perfectly comfortable with *these* assertions.

Hm. Indeed, doesn't that go counter to your earlier claim that if you
dload an app it comes with the "white look"? :)

As for the *default* look, I favor having a giant slider with "bone
white" on end and "cotton candy" on the other. As you move the from bw to
