Since our new tab tray designs require the use of an action bar menu, we should tweak the title bar design to make it easier to visually distinguish between the main title bar menu icon, and the tab title bar menu icon. 

We can probably do this with a simple transition that would involve 

1. animating the main menu icon off the screen when the tab tray is opened
2. extending the grey tab bar background all the way across the header 
3. show a tab menu icon in a slightly different colour.
Is the menu button's background black or grey? There will be an abrupt switch if its grey on tabs-menu.
That's why we need a quick transition from one title bar to the other.
This flattens the tabs-tray toolbar. No more curvy buttons in tabs-panel. Yaay! no more personas for them!! yaay!! Less XML files! Yaay!!

But we need new blue menu button similar to "+" button. That's the next patch.

We have a solid square button. We don't need a delegate anymore.

And the new menu icons to look good on the tabs-panel.

We still need a transition, as Ian indicates. That could be a followup bug.
