This change is definitely a big improvement. Rearranging panel elements
after plugging monitors or resizing the screen was a pain.

Changing the right-click is okay and reduces the risk of accidental
changes. My first thought was "Oh, they removed the ability to
add/rearrange stuff in the panel". When searching for a bug report to
get this feature back, I stumbled over the new key combination. Either I
did not read the appropriate news or this change was not announced
prominently enough.
