Thanks for the info, Frederik. As you can tell, I’m not a programmer, and as such, there’s only so much I can glean from mailing lists, blogs, and wikis about Canonical’s design specifications. Glad to know things are as simple as that. Does this mean that the sound indicator is working around the API when it paints the muted speaker red? Or is green the exception?

Here’s hoping the spec doesn’t grow to include blue and orange.
