steampunk: refined woodwork for xp themes

as featured on lifehacker:

- fixed stretching problem when used at the bottom of the screen
- lots of re-coloring
- start menu themed to match better
- now uses Tahoma 8pt font
- solid colors for taskbar items (I found I cant really use images effectively for that)

Le me know what you think of the changes, esp. the start menu because it's they only stylistic thing I did on this update. the rest of the work was fixes.

This is me doing some work on nitzua's theme "woodwork" which is actually built on top of "Sandwich" by akka.

nitzua's woodwork theme

akka's sandwich theme

I wanted to use it permanently, but saw that the taskbar and maximize window title still have akka's skin instead of the woodwork look.

I might change a few things and eventually finish the skin or start with a skin that is closer to what works well with this wood look. for now I thought I'd share this with you all because I think it's a really sharp looking skin and I made it "done" enough to be pretty functional. I don't use quicklaunch or "hide inactive icons" - if you don't either I don't think you'll notice much limitation with it.

also check out the Reaper skin "bubinga" and the foobar2000 skin OldStyle by weirdoo - I think they fit right in.

As far as all that moding and porting and whathaveyou - I would say just read whatever rights granted by the other two authors and respect them.
