Something which hasn't been implemented with the patch on bug 601022 are the shadows around the selected category and the list/details views. As given by Blair it was nearly impossible. Looks like we have to research for a solution.

Mockup: Indended color bleed vs. current color difference

Ideally the right pane and the left inset around a category would appear cut out of the same material.  This would include being identically styled, such as showing the same shadow around both portions and having colors from the right pane bleeding through to the category on the left.

Right now, the color around the category is similar but not identical to an enabled add-on's background in the right pane.  This half solutions becomes obvious if the user scales the add-on manager, because the gradient on the right makes the different obvious.  As Blair has said, it may be nearly impossible to fully implement this shape, but maybe some clever trick can make the current problem look better.
