I have been following this thread and while it is true WebKit
does not necessarily allow true Mac-like appearance, it does
have the advantage of it being skin-able, since it does allow
easy changing of the CSS.
I agree that if we have something that works now then we should
go with it. At the same time I ask how this settings are going
to be accessed and whether there could be a way of making the
web-like appearance feel as if it was meant to be.
I would love to see a prototype of this in Action in a non-official
build just to see how well it is working out.
