Script that add color gradient to text in dzen status bar

Hi everyone,

I couldn't find a way to make text color gradiant in dzen. I wanted it to span over all text, not icons, so I made a small script that will do just this.
I figured I might as well share it in case some one else would find it useful (well, hardly useful, but we all love eye candy, right).

Usage is very simple. Just pipe output from conky through script and then to dzen like so:

conky | gradient FF0000 0000FF | dzen ...

and the result would look something like:
Red to blue sample image

or a more sensible gradient:
Blue to light grey sample image

You can find the code at my GitHub account.
