Not fully black and white

Those "black and white" backgrounds aren't actually fully black and white. They're just very very heavily desaturated. There is a tiny amount of saturation still in there though. Nice way of solving the problem of contrasting icons against an unpredictably-colored background, especially when combined with the blur effect.

I was noticing the very same thing after reading this hint but wasn't sure if it was for real or if i was just imagining things... there is a teensy bit of saturation left in the pic even on the b/w setting.
