This is the quest: build a perfect UI using only GTK standard widgets

I don't think we should reimplement widgets: old rhythmbox (I mean
0.2.x) do it and there was a lot of troubles in theming stuff. And there
are of people (Mac user) hating iApps skinned interfaces (and
reimplemented widgets)

Besides: yeah, if we use the beveled info area, a different (darker,
IMHO) background color make it cool and fun, but it's a theme stuff (or
we can build a rhythmbox.grkrc like

        style "info-area" 
        backgroung = darker (default_background)
        RB_info_area "info-area"
Think bigger
