Specifically for the menu item colour I am thinking about making the
system extension colour list, that is already used in GSToolbarView an
official GNUstep mechanism, move the code over to NSColor and to add all
the other colour definitions we have scattered in GNUstep gui (I think
NSTableView uses some, hints to other places are welcome). That way a
theme would just need to override one extra colour list.

Is this a feasible approach for you? Or do you see a reason to do things

Having a separate color for the "menu bar" and for the menus themselves would help also in making a better Windows theme, since WinXP and Vista have separate colors for that. Thank you.
As for GSTaskBar I already replied on the discussion list. What I would
like to know about the implementation is what change will be required in
NSApplication and NSWindow. We should try to come up with a generic way
to handle application icons here, so that we don't need to change our
gui code the next time somebody comes up with an idea for a task bar tool.
I miss to understand what's really about too.
