UI Freeze exception: Theming fixes for Software Center

Bug Description

Software Center recently switched over to a new GTK3-based user interface and we have some theming bugs outstanding that we need to have fixed. These will result in some changes in the user interface, most noticeably when using a light-color theme such as Radiance. There is also a change to the appearance of the navigation buttons at the left of the top navigation panel.

These primary rationale for this exception request is that, in its current state, Software Center is nearly unusable when using the Radiance theme (see screenshot at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/77454179/Navigation%20bar.png , an attachment to bug 828092). The screenshot at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/78622321/Radiance.png shows the same navigation bar with the proposed fix. Note also that bug 828092 has been set to "high" importance because it is very easy to switch themes in Ubuntu now.

The other bugs addressed by the proposed fix are bug 830681 and bug 830738. Again, these are mainly color changes that will serve to improve the usability of Software Center.

There are no string changes associated with this freeze exception request.
