KitKat Design change

The big design change I see is not only having the UI highlights match app including the circle of touch color you get when touching something but also the changes to the status bar and actionbar that allow you to more easily make actionbar and status bar transparent and thus revealing your app background. Relax, some already did some thinking on it with work arounds.

The Android PulltoRefresh for native actionbar library already  adjust headerview for the transparency of actionbar so probably have to extend it further. For status bar transparency I guess we need to look at the section for status bar styles in styles.xml for android itself.
