5. Provide an horizontal engine, that targets fixed height and
variable width panels (in columns steps). There seems to be horizontal
users, so there should be not problem to get people to help and
maintain the layouts. Even in some case with wide screens, horizontal
mode is good, as currently there are too many vertical areas and eat
work zone quickly.

Automatic systems will always make horizontal second class, with
wasted space or strange column splits, instead of a properly human
controlled layout, just like vertical is. By manual setting things,
buttons can be properly fit to horizontal contraints instead of
reshuffle based in what is inheriting vertical single column and
placing as it comes from vertical related decissions.
