A great question :)

I didn't want to make huge sweeping changes, given that this process is
not going to be "standard", so I've gone with the blue theme.

I took a screenshot last night before I pushed to svn, you can see it on
imgur[1] :)

I'm thinking of using the ink-splat as the default background, and the
plain swirl in other places, and the unbranded grandiant (or perhaps the
logo moved to a corner?) for the login screens.
