Any way to move the Window Maker dock to the top or bottom of screen?


So I've been playing with Window Maker and I've about fell in love with it. Fast, feature-rich, and easy to use. However, I think I fell *too* much in love with it, especially the dockapps; I've reached a point where I'm adding too many dockapps and am running out of room for them on the various machines running WM (including this one - a OpenBSD-powered PowerBook G4 with a mere 1280x854 display).

Title says it all; is there any way to move Window Maker's dock to the top or bottom of the screen, where I can leverage the width of the screen and cram a couple more icons into it? Or maybe allow multiple columns? I've been playing around with the Clip as an alternative, but it's not really the same (especially in the case of maximized windows; the Dock neither covers nor is covered by a maximized window, whereas the Clip is either covered or covering a maximized window, which is annoying).

Or am I just out of luck here?

Have you seen the new 'drawers' feature in Window Maker 0.95.5? http://windowmaker.org/news.php and link therein

Even better; thanks!

OpenBSD appears to only have version 0.92 available as a precompiled package, so this laptop wouldn't benefit from it (unless ports has a later version of it somewhere...), so this particular laptop is a bit out of luck, but I'll be sure to check the versions on the various openSUSE and Slackware machines running it and see if I can put that to use.
