So, I've reimplemented borders on elements in CVS. This is how it is
working now.

a) You can specify a border by adding "border" to the texture's
b) The border can be specified on solid and gradient textures, but
   only on flat textures (i.e. not textures with a beveled border).
c) The border's color is specified by a .borderColor declaration.
d) The border's width is always 1. This is because the border is drawn
   inside of the element. I could make it resizable, but anything much
   larger than 1 will obscure the contents of the element.


window.button.focus:             flat border vertical gradient
window.button.focus.color:       rgb:d6/5a/36
window.button.focus.colorTo:     rgb:f8/f6/e7
window.button.focus.borderColor: rgb:ff/ff/ff
window.button.focus.picColor:    rgb:e8/ff/f5

I am damn unsatisfied to be killed in this way.
