Darker Ubuntu theme for screen-profiles

As requested, there is now an ubuntu-dark theme for Ubuntu's screen-profiles. This allows you to choose between light-on-dark, or dark-on-light colors for the window panel and the status panel across the bottom of your screen.

Make sure you have at least screen-profiles_1.15-0ubuntu1, which you can retrieve from:
And then run:

$ select-screen-profile

Select a screen profile:
1. plain
2. ubuntu-light ---- recommended
3. ubuntu-dark

Choose: 1-3 [2]: 3
If your terminal is also configured for light-on-dark, or if you're on a tty console, your screen should look something like this:

Thanks to Tyler Willingham for the suggestion and the patch/branch in Launchpad.
