Q: Opt out of the new upvote/downvote buttons?

M.G.I guess most of you have noticed by now the new upvote/downvote buttons. This seems to be in line with all the other SE sites (though I admit I haven't checked each and every one of them). Does MO have to accept these cosmetic changes or is there any way to opt out? Personally, I find them hideou...

The design of meta voting buttons has been changed so at least now it's obvious if one has voted. — David Roberts ♦ 4 hours ago

So I guess it the distinction is not sufficient on the main MO site, this would be a possible place where to bring up this specific issue.
Although to me the distinction here on MO seems visible enough. (At least more than on Mathematics.)
