Well, it made my life a bit easier ;-) Thanks for passing on the debian
reports though. I don't know how easy it would be to add it back now
(some things changed internally), but I could have a look.
The only reason I ever heard for not putting the panel on the screen
edge is to put it above or below the taskbar; in most of these cases the
person actually preferred the taskbar plugin.
