I really like it, and it still looks -great- with a flat color theme.  It's
also extremely fast.  Apparently it's smart enough to realize when it's
sending blocks of solid color and tells X to draw solid rectangles instead
of blitting like some applications tend to.

Yes.  They get swallowed into something called "the slit", which is, in
my configuration anyway, on the right side of the screen, starting at
the bottom.  It only shows up (and quickly at that, no sliding) when I
bump my mouse into it, which I also really like.

For me, it's perfect.  It GETS OUT OF MY WAY when I want to work, but
still lets me look at the pretty widgets when I ask.
