Customizing the Spotlight

Hi All,

I was wondering if there is a plugin, or if one could be made, for the administrator to change the position of the "Spotlight" to the top. Or, to the side of the layout. Or, perhaps, even have multiple "Spotlight" boxes. One at the top, and one to the right or left of the page. I'm also thinking that I would like to have a custom "Spotlight" -- to have the box filled with recently online members in the users area. Or, have it filled with anything from Newest Members, to a message board.


I figured this would probably be of interest to a lot of people who are also working on their sites, and so came to the conclusion that it would be best to have this as an open discussion.
