GNOME 2.4 now supports a non-square thing there; ideally I believe it
would be simply text (perhaps saying "Main Menu") plus maybe an arrow
drawn by the theme engine and/or an icon of some kind.

Though I don't think KDE supports a rectangle with text so it introduces
a consistency problem if we do that. Also if using a rectangle we'd
probably want the half-height panel.

Two observations about Longhorn (next-gen windows):

 - the panel is on the side, so you have more vertical space for 
   documents (though I'm not sure where the window list lives)

 - they always have text+icon instead of just icon for the 
   stuff on the panel; all the applets have labels

Havoc
