I never noticed that, but I wasn't looking.  I like the idea that there
is a modeline indicator for modified files, but I'm not convinced it
has to be obvious.

Seeing as all this is a matter of personal opinion I find CVS*1.21 ugly
and I dont find CVS:1.21 that pretty either. My preference is CVS+1.21
(mnemonic: additions have been made to version 1.21).

Yeah I agree with this and with Stephan's other comments regarding
background highlighting (well except for the rounded corners thing).

Changing the foreground color would be my choice for a default
