Re: Power-Cog turning blue when software updates are available off the table?

I thought at one point there was supposed to be a blue-highlight of
the Power-Cog when software updates are available. since there is an
entry in the Power-Cog: "Software Is Up To Date" wouldn't it be a
beneficial feature for the Power-Cog to turn blue color when the
software is NOT up to date? Similar to how the Power-Cog turns red
when restart is needed and the indicator-messaging (envelope) turns
blue when new e-mail has arrived?
Yes, this would be consistent with our design guidelines for the indicators.
* the indicator can turn colour [green - affirmative, blue -
informational, red - warning]
* the relevant section in the indicator (in this case, software update
line in the menu) goes the same colour to create a thread from the
indicator to the menu action
Mockups and bugs welcome.
