I feel the same way about this proposal. I would be happy with a row layout
completely analogous to the column layout. Would it be hard to add an extra flag
to a view to use the same information but to display clients in rows instead of
columns? At least navigation concepts wouln't change that way, and nothing would be
broken with this addition.
