 I added a note on vertical toolbars at:
 However much I tried, though, the best advice I could come up with is
 "it's almost always better not to use them" :)  If anyone has some
 better advice, feel free to comment....

+It was pretty trivial to remove the vertical toolbar from
+GnomeMeeting. It had far far far more toolbar items than it needed.
+Not sure its a very good example. 
+Actually, not sure there are any good examples, because my personal
+feeling is that we should avoid the "toolbar bloat" ala Microsoft
+Office. At some point toolbars lose their usefulness because they have
+too many items, and you might as well encourage menu use instead and
+leave the toolbar for the truly common items.
+If the user wants to turn on 20 toolbars and make some of them
+vertical, they can go right ahead, but I don't think applications
+should have more than one or two, toolbars visible by default.
