  Only if you think lime-green on a zebra-stripe grey table looks great! 
I just started the plugin and there were a lot of 'New' plugins in the 
repos, and so I had a huge block of bright lime-green - nearly put me 
off my breakfast! Now I've restarted it the plugins aren't flagged as 
'new' anymore, just 'not installed', so the dialog is a bit tamer now.

  While I'm being critical (I'm saving the praise for later) the 
Description fields are often way too long for the width of a screen. 
Where is this text coming from, because it's not the description() 
function in __init__.py which is usually short enough? I'd make that 
field in the dialog into the description() text and put the longer help 
text into a tooltip box that pops up on hovering.

  But otherwise, niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice :)
