BTW, the old-style bitmaps could be given the XO colors
and then scaled.

How will it work?

Consider running one Sugar activity per virtual desktop.
This would allow multi-window programs like the infamous
gimp to fit in pretty well, except that of course they are
not full-screen and thus receive window borders.
Nobody ever sees a window border until they run something
that isn't full-screen.
