Was that suppoesd to be sarcasm? Because certainly the "old" gnome-panel can be dragged to any side just fine.

Because even though the Gnome-panel can be moved to the side, it is effectively broken that way. The task bar fails to work correct, bad stuff happens when there are too many windows, the quick launch icons get screwed up, etc etc.
I use the panel on the side when I am stuck using Windows and I've tried it with Gnome, but it sucks.
