Let the panel control the orientation not the plugins

It might not be a good idea to have a setting called something like "Invert buttons orientation" in each plugin like Action Buttons to choose if what the plugins shows in the panel should be horizontal or vertical.
This makes it harder to change the panel preferences.
Suppose i have the panel set up nicely in horizontal mode but now i want to change to deskbar/vertical.
But if i do that i might have to go into the plugins that have such a setting a toggle it to be able to see the plugin correctly. And then if i switch the panel back to horizontal again i would have to go into the plugin settings again.
I would think it smart to select the panel mode (horizontal/vertical/deskbar) and then the plugins have to adapt to what ever orientation/space they are given by the panel.
So if the panel is only wide enough for 3 buttons and the plugin wants to show 6 well then wrap it/use two rows for the plugin instead of cutting half of it off.
