I don't actually use my setup like that.

My laptop sits to the side of my "main" display on a little stand. No
real reason I chose that layout other than to make the desk look tider
(monitor in the middle) when the laptop isn't there :p

Just pointing out that your assumption wont be true in all
circumstances, tho' I don't think I would be annoyed if this was the
default, provided Keith eventually gets round to making it configurable
as he's already said.

Happy Holidaymas to everyone.
