Getting rid of ugliness in the Eclipse IDE

Continuing our work to make the Eclipse IDE nicer we also removed some “weird things of the past” in our default styling.

Thanks to Patrik Suzzi for removing the yellow underline in the Mac theme (why did we have a YELLOW line?????). I also removed that in the Linux and Window variant to remove some ugliness here also. This was done via a custom painter, which I also plan to remove to save performance.
