I tried the above but it didn't do what I wanted:  make the mouse-over

I find working with outliers helps me figure out things.  In this
particular case I set `Hover Decoration' to fuschia (aka `Hot Pink'
:).  I could see how it affected my other windows but it didn't change
what I was after.

Does it work for you:  when you set `hover decoration', does it change
the intensity of the mouse-over on the icons found in `System

The intensity I'm talking about seems related to `Selection
Background'  If I change `Selection Background' to a very dark color,
the mouse-over is a lighter version of it.  Consequently, if the
`Selection Background' isn't too dark, the mouse-over is too light for
my tastes.

There must be some sort of color-index which determines how much to (I
don't know if this is the proper term) desaturate the mouse-over

Thank you for the detailed explanation!  There's a bit for me to
grok.  I may need some coffee!  :)
