Pd/Max objects are basically words, which are generally much wider
horizontally than they are high vertically. Even with the usual 4/3
ratio of modern screens you will never fit as many objects
horizontally as you can vertically, so the current layout is a better
use of the available screen space.

I must say, especially with graph on parent patches I more often run
out of horizontal then out of vertical space.
Also words stretch vertically. If you replace an object with another
one bearing a longer name, then your layout will risk getting out of
