This can be easily done with a small JS extension, if it doesn't already
exists. (Though, from a design POV, I really doubt moving the bar to the
bottom is a good idea, since you need to put the messaging bar somewhere

Probably not. gnome-panel+metacity (GNOME3 fallback mode) don't take up
much space since most of their dependencies are needed by GNOME3
anyways. You would only need to port your changes to gnome-panel 3,
which might be easy if you don't use too many deprecated internals.
