Hey, just got an idea, someone's probably thought of this earlier, but I'd like to see GNOME use the screen more wisely.
On widescreen running fullscreen apps there's a lot of space that gets tossed away having the panel, the application window title, and the application menu on top of each other. If you look horizontally there's a lot of available space.
Why not collapse the window title to the application icon already visible on GNOME panel? It's a clicker now, so just add window options for un-maximize, minimize etc. Then hide the GNOME clock again on GNOME panel, and put the application menu there, from the application icon and across the screen towards the notification area.
This way you save almost 50 px on the height.
Or should I just get cracking and get xmonad running again?
