I think people are just not getting what sort of functionality would be lost with any of those suggestions. And it makes no sense in Gnome 3 to impose space wasting horizontal panels on people who want to optimize vertical space. Especially on laptops and netbooks that Gnome 3 is supposed to be good for. This is simply a valuable functionality that has lost in the shift from Gnome 2 to Gnome 3.
I don't know why I can't make a suggestion without people mocking it. If it's not something you value or are unable to understand fine. It doesn't mean it wouldn't be valued by and useful to others. All I want to do is be able to move the panels to the side of screen as was always possible in Gnome 2. It's a simple and useful idea.

I like the kind of layout and configurability that the Gnome panel (especially as it was in Gnome 2) offered. So I'd simply like to be able to take the panels in Gnome 3, as they appear with Mint's MGSE and drag them to the sides of my screen (as had been possible for eons in Gnome 2).
