It's the natural way to store the layout when using a reverse layout. The 
first applet is the one on the right. The resulting code is simpler because 
you have less special cases to consider for the reverse layout situation.

The childpanel config file names are listed in the kickerrc however. Perhaps 
it's possible to let the kicker update script update the childpanel config 
files as well?
