Description of problem:
The (plain) sidebar in the redhat theme is quite ugly. The tabs (borrowed
from the Default nautilus theme) do not even blend with this color.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any folder in nautilus.	

Actual Results:  The sidebar is plain, tabs don't blend nicely.

Expected Results:  The sidebar should be nicer looking, like the Crux-* or
Default themes.

I pretty much agree that it's ugly, as is most of the desktop. We don't have the
design skills to fix it however. We really want something plain/uncluttered and
fast/low-memory, and the desktop setup we have is the best we could come up with
using our meager artistic ability. Using something plain and conservative keeps
us safe from horrible mistakes. ;-)

Will probably get an artist to help us sometime, but not for this release.
