Just a quick response,
Well I have been using HUD a lot and kind of like it.
It does not come in my way as such.
As a joke, let me tell you, I have not gone to the top panel of Unity 2d 
for quite some time to shut down the machine.
I don't use it as well for selecting and connecting to my wifi or mobile 
All this works so well with HUD.
Happy hacking.

There will always be the GNOME remix, and I dare say once Ubuntu stops using GNOME completely, then you will see GNOME regularly up to date in future Ubuntu releases.
