I for one have always turned off the show/hide buttons,
they waste precious space.

The context menu for applets should have an entry for Panel. 
Unfortunately, the task list context menu doesn't even have applet
properties, just close/minimise/maximise/shade/move/resize.  The tiny
mover grip has Preferences; I'd like this to be
    Task List Preferences...
    Panel Preferences...

A workaround is to set the panel background to a visibly different
colour and looking for a pixel of that colour to ckick on. You can
make a patch to click on by dragging the task list.

I think a feature-by-feature comparison of gnome 2 and 1.4 from a user's
point of view would be helpful.  This should not include using
gconf-editor where there used to be a user interface, for example :)

But it'd be a lot of work.
