I never thought of using transparent/translucent PNGs with a color 
underneath to change the scrollbar color. It sounds like it could work 
and might be a good idea. But I think Mac OS X uses the TIFF image 
format. Or PICT but I'm not sure.

I don't like the idea either but there seems to be a lot of people who 
want this, and I won't stand in the way. I wouldn't use it at all but I 
know others who would.
