I also thought it was pretty cool but I tried that the other day with Task Manager by using the k-cluster sampling code from Big Screen to get the dominant icon color.

It didn't work very well. Our current design the line doesn't give much area for colorization (the background is pretty faint then) and I always kept thinking my VLC player was demanding attention as the button turned orange.

I sometimes wish I could colorize specific apps so I don't lose them in task bar (e.g. my email client or music player) but I am not sure the colorization stuff really works well in practice. I think Unity (or what's left of it) also moved away from permanently colored sidebar tiles.
