I prefer a simple panel and right now I have only three launchers plus
the pager, and 2 plugins: battery and minicmd. I very rarely alter the
order of items or move them around, because I have a visual image of the
panel in my mind and like to do things without thinking. I do try every
plugin as they come out or find about them. While they are *on trial* I
place them on the right or the left end of the panel so I remember to
use them. If I decide to keep a plugin, I rearrange the panel, but
curiously enough, I do not mix launchers and plugins. Do not ask me why,
I do not know :-).

So, in short, my answer to your questions would be: 1) Every time I find
about a new plugin. Because I am curious. 2) Very, very often. Because I
am curious, but in the end I prefer a simple panel 3) Very rarely, I add
items to one end or the other, but do not really rearrange the panel or
move items around.

A mess, but I hope it helps somehow.
