Right now i try to make quite advanced things in css that where till ~
1 year ago only possible with images.
But i encountered some issues that right now can only be solved by
stacking multiple div elements on top or by using images.

The issues i found:
- I can only specify one border while i need more then one
- I need to be able to set a border that will be and remain
transparent and will not get overdrawn if for example a shadow on that
same property is added. Sure it can get overdrawn if there is another
element moving over it.

What i try to make is this:

The option with 1, 2 and 3 is possible right now but that's only for that bar.
The most ideal option here would be if there is an option that allows
me to set a shadow and multiple (rounded in my case!) gradients.
That might be a bit to user specific so this is probably never going
to be accepted.

Another thing that i do need is the ability to add multiple borders on
a single element. If you look at that link again in the bigger box you
see a 1px border followed by a 2px white border followed by a soft
shadow. If i want to make this in css only I can only make it with
stacking 2 divs and playing with positions (look in the source of that

Another thing that would be handy is if it could be possible to set a
border as transparent and that it will NOT be overdrawn by properties
added to that element like a shadow or background image.

What do you think?
