Moving into the future
For Espresso's sidebar and blockquote we're using a method for rounding the corners that is part of the CSS 3 standard. This is used on many popular sites and services like Twitter and Apple. It provides nice, lightweight, rounded corners and in older browsers that do not support it it degrades gracefully to normal squared off boxes as to not cause problems for your users.
