It would be sad if stack position toggling were removed from the main
branch. It is quite useful to many people, and scales as well as
necessary for us. I hope to some day have a 21" 2000x1200px display, but
I believe I would still use it then. I have gotten feedback that people
are using bottom stack as their default layout on their laptop. I have a
17" at home and a 19" at work, and while the right stack is my
predominant layout, the bottom stack is a very important view.

P.S. If bottom stack is removed, I will continue to supply my patch.
