One minor problem with using a grey scale aging theme
for the list view background screen is that when this
is extended to the folders view, a that the outline of
a white colored folder (for, say, email received in
last 1 hour) would not go well with a white colored
background. Hence, if a background grey scale aging
theme was used in the list view frame, then perhaps
the default background for the folders frame should be
something like light blue or light beige in color so
that white folders would stand out better.
