Hm. I am not sure here. Somehow the emboss gives a optical hint that 
there is something new starting.

I think the arrows are much to dark. It was and is always hard to print 
a Blender screen but this way I think it will be nearly impossible to 
see the arrows anymore. Also there is not much visual hint how that this 
is a menu-button and not a normal one.

Thats nice. I think together with the removal of emboss it looks nice, 
but see first point.

> * Screen splitting widgets look

Too dark too.

> * Toolbar/properties expand button look

Yea, the original ones are a bit big.
