@Kendy, sorry for the late reply, and I see all questions have been answered

A recent idea which just occured to me:

In Cocoa applications, window bar is a toolbar itself. But this is just one
toolbar, it would not be possible to put LO toolbars in this area, and it would
not make sense from a designer's point of view. 

What we can do is, create this toolbar area, and make it totally customisable,
like in other Mac applications. So the user would add whatever button from
whatever toolbar he wants, and organise his workspace.

Below the window bar and to the sides user can dock whatever toolbar they want.
Personally I like docking the toolbars to the sides of the window, it looks
neat. http://i.imgur.com/yjJvPwm.png - http://i.imgur.com/CjS2wgw.png

And the gradient issue:

- As far as I know, OS X draws the gradient automatically according to the
operating system, since Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion have different
gradients, so it would not be a problem. Also sidebar background should be
unified with the dockable toolbars as well. 

Personally I'd love to see this as an EasyHack also.
