OK; I did feel like posting on here would be rather trollish, but
since you insisted.... :)

Like Harold, I usually keep the same setup with the panel.  I will
sometimes check out a new plugin once I hear about it, but rarely do I
find one useful enough to keep.  And like Harold, I find that changing
things around always seems like a good idea at the time, but I always
go back to my old ways: a setup that looks rather like MS Windows
taskbar.  For better or for worse....
