I've pushed a change to master that (I hope) improves the situation:


[for cherry-picking purposes, probably easier to check the
non-whitespace changes version:

With this patch, it looks like this:



Unfortunately it is not ideal; as you can see, the vertical toolbars
have no distinction between them and the workspace.  I think it is not
really a problem, just different to what we used to have, but needs
approval from you / UX list.

Your original proposal for comparison:


I am doing some larger changes in master to make it more alike your
proposal, I am just a bit afraid they'll be too big for cherry-picking
to 3.6.x; unfortunately no easy win there :-(

Please let me know what do you prefer from the UX point of view:

1) status quo - 3.6 vertical / floating toolbars use the 'native'
   theming (inconsistent with the new 3.6 look)
2) half-way solution - my screenshots above; more consistent look, but
   no line splitting the vertical toolbars from the workspace
3) complete solution - will take some larger reviewing, as this touches
   look on all platforms; I'll see if I can find a brave reviewer :-)

Would be good to have a decision until the Monday's 3.6.1 RC1 freeze, so
that if we put it in, we are able to revert that in RC2, should it cause
