Well, I figured it was you who committed the change, but that would
have been more obvious if you used your real name for all emails. ;)

About the right-click, I'm not fond of the extra work - I can't tell
whether I will use it to start new apps or whether I will try to get
accustomed to drag'n'drop instead. Compared with what I've been using
so far before (a single-click launcher icon in the GNOME panel for a
couple of "favourites"), the new day is more work and less convenient.

Btw, I think the GNOME 3 roll-out in Fedora should be "all or nothing",
that means, no *competing* fallback mode that tries to keep old panel
features alive.
