Yes. A "grid" is ok, though, doesn't have to be *completely* free, as some desktops are.

Are you asking me? If I want to move the dials to other places? I'd think that would be obvious from what I wrote, but the answer is "yes". For example, I prefer my "dials" to be in, say, a 4x5 grid. Some may be empty, but I like a particular one to be in the lower left corner. Then others, say of a certain "type" such as different bug queries, to be along the right hand edge. And, if I add a new one, I would not want those "moving around" just because I added a new one.
