As you can see from the location of the apple-not-a-menu, those snaps 
are quite old.

Bite your tongue, boy! 8^)

We're painfully aware of the conflict between the <ack-pfffftht!> 
Dock and Alpha's status bar. Dock-right-pin-start, with icons set 
near minimum doesn't obscure the God-given desktop icons or conflict 
with Alpha's status bar. [pin start isn't critical; it just keeps the 
dock icons from swooping around so much in that nauseating fashion 
that Stevie-boy evidently has fond memories of from his LSD days.]

We're well aware that reconfiguring the Dock like this won't be 
acceptable to everybody; AlphaX already makes some limited attempts 
to accomodate the Dock and we'll have a better solution by release 
(actually, I hope to have a better solution by the end of the week). 
We'll leave forcing dubious user interface elements down people's 
throats to the folks in Cupertino.
