Regressions in GNOME 2 vs 1.x

First off, the panel is inflexible.  It is highly non-configurable. 
What happened to being able to specify tiles and highlighting? (Edge
Panel... I don't like the menu panel too much, especially as it lets
things appear over and under instead of forcing that section of the
screen off limits for new processes.)

Second, the task list (Again edge panel), groups any given number of
windows from the same task together.  I liked the old behavior of giving
a minimum before it will group.

Basically, a lot of configurability has disappeared.  This is a bad
thing, IMHO.

Can I help out with some of this?  I don't know.  I would love to, but I
am afraid my GUI coding skills are not that high.  Should I try? You
tell me.  Am I complaining?  A little bit.  Do I think Gnome rocks
still? Yes.  Is it faster than KDE? For me, heck yes.  (For KDE fans, I
am not denying your choice nor trying to start a flame war, for me GNOME
is better.  For you, KDE may be.  That is life and choice.)
