Great. After checking our Ia Ora palette, I'll take #8692A6.

Hmm, are you sure the bottom border (not visible version) is working ?
I've tested it and border only "feels" 3 pixels when moving mouse cursor
over it, not 12.

Well, it looks logical, since you are able to get a window "out" of the
pager, you may want to push it back (on another workspace) the same way
you grabbed it the first time. And if you are really "aesthetic", you'd
like to have a "slurp" effect (in and out), just like on MacOSX for apps
in dock ;)
