I wouldn't really mind if http://www.blogger.com/ used something like

  @linear-gradient login-border
  {
    @stop-at   0% rgb(49, 97, 198);
    @stop-at 100% transparent;
  }

  @linear-gradient login-background
  {
    @stop-at   0% rgb(33, 81, 132);
    @stop-at 100% transparent;
  }

  form#login
  {
    border: 4px solid gradient(login-border, tb);
    border-radius: 16px;
    background-color: gradient(login-background, tb);
  }
  ...

instead of using http://www.blogger.com/img/bg_login.jpg though.
