Another 'active' colour for Stack & Tile could send a better message.

At the moment, Stack & Tile uses the red colour to indicate that a window is at a position to automatically stack/tile. I believe green would be a better choice:
To stack/tile, the user needs to perform a 'keypress & drag' combination.
This means the chance that Stacking & Tiling occurs by accident is virtually zero. So the user is expecting something as a result of what he consciously chose to do, and only needs a visual confirmation of it (through colour).
In such a case (with that user's state of mind), a green colour would suit better than red, since red psychologically says 'Stop', 'Look out', 'Error', 'Warning' etc.
Those are deterring (rather than confirming) messages that send the exact opposite message of what you want to achieve.
I'm not saying green should definitely be it, but red is too wrong to not correct, IMHO. And it's an easy fix ;)
