Start Menu Mod

As a result of discussion in the Start Menu Full topic, I will no longer need Start Menu icons and all that space is now wasted and only the 'Search' and 'All Programs' button remains. Is it possible to reduce/remove that empty space by relocating these to join the items on the right-side (preferred option)? Or maybe even add them to a toolbar or stack (secondary option)?

I don't know about resizing the start menu list to only show search though I would ask Brink on one of his many great tutorials about the start menu and see if he can help,

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
