Status bar has been 'fixed' in 1.1.

My main intend is not to make this one 'official' it's just how I
personally like my desktop and if anyone else likes it: cool  :)

Let's start with the Openbox port and maybe just bring it back as
default, first.

Besides that we also have to think about GNOME 3 themes but I am not
sure if the theme infrastructure is already setup for the Shell.
