As much as I would like more people to contribute to xfce4-panel, I do
not recommend starting from this feature. The panel layout code is
complex, fragile and affects the panel performance. Unless you can show
you know what you are doing, test the changes thoroughly in all possible
configurations, implement a configuration UI for this feature, and
maintain the changes afterwards, I will NOT push the patch to the
Overall, this change requires quite a lot of work for a fairly small
usability improvement. It is a good feature but IMHO not worth the effort.
