Hi devs,

One thing that was neglected in the preparation of 3.0 is a fresh
default color theme for this new release cycle.

What I propose is to use by default a theme similar with the current
xwiki.org themes: dark grey menus and panel headers, and a lively
colored page header. Besides bringing a fresh look to the default
wiki, this combination has the advantage of having been used and
tested on xwiki.org for several months, so there will be no unpleasant
surprises (like wrong contrasts) coming with this change. Here are two
themes that follow this pattern, both having a stylish gradient as
header image:
- orange: 
http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/Extension/Soft+Orange+ColorTheme
- blue: http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/Extension/Soft+Blue+ColorTheme

My +1 goes for using the orange version as default color theme in 3.0.
