[Pharo-dev] Spotlight behaviour

The problem with dark themes is that they require icons prepared for
dark backgrounds. And not only in terms of alpha channels, but also in
terms of contrast.

I like the dark theming of Adobe products, or the "gray" theming of
video editing software.
But I once read that it was made dark to give prominence to the
subject of the editor, in this case pictures and videos.

Sublime Text and even Vim can afford this, because they're code pane
centric editors.
In our case, what should have the prominence? The code pane? the
selectors in the browser?

Anyhow, I like the fact Pharo looks better and better.
I'd only want that no operation other than painting/event dispatching
take place in the main (UI?) thread. :)

Esteban A. Maringolo
