Even though I prefer 3 as well, I don't think it is an improvement over 
our current theme. There is no unity between the banner and the rest of 
the screen because blue and grey don't match that well. In the screenshot 
it very much looks like the banner was just dumped on top of the actual 
screen. The current combination of red and grey is much more natural.

I also still don't like the shadows under the icons.

Let me also make my position as D-I release manager very clear on this 
issue:
- I quite like the theme we currently have; we've received quite a few
  nice comments about it and no real criticism
- D-I is already effectively frozen; this really should have been done
  before RC1
- as the (hopefully final) kernel has just been uploaded, time is running
  out
- for me the main criterion for changing the theme is not the integration
  with the desktop themes, but whether it makes g-i look better (or at
  least not worse)
- changing the engine used for gtk is not an option
- I will only consider a change if we receive a _complete_ patch,
  including banner, icons and theme file, and screenshots of how things
  look in the installer (showing at least text input, selection list,
  progress bar, error screen and informational screen)
- given the limited time we have and the fact that D-I is already frozen,
  I'm not going decide on this based on popular vote, but purely on my
  own judgement (of course taking into account opinions from others in
  this thread

Cheers,
FJP
