    Here here.  The aspect of GNOME that makes me use it over a simple
 window manager is the incredible configurability.  if anything, I'd
 to see it becomre more configurable.  I'd like to be able to have panel
 icons bigger than the panel itself, and I'd like to have an option to
 turn on icon magnification (like in KDE).  As far as panels go, I don't
 think that there should be a menu panel.  There should be options for
 menu, edge, aligned, Sliding, etc...and everything that's on the menu
 panel now should be applets.  I'd also like to see the finder thing and
 the menus as applets that I could add to panels at my own
 discression...well, I ramble, so I'll stop now.
