Mm? The panel has two choices (bottom and right) while the taskbar
hastwo choices (top and bottom). It is plainly unreasonable to tell me
that I can't put them both at the bottom.

What are the changes in upstream that you refer to?

As an aside, my wishlist-utopic fix for this would be a tasklist panel
applet and that the panel would horizontally fill the bottom of the screen.
