It doesn't work.

Again -- see the screenshot gallery I posted for an illustration.

A vertical _panel_ is easy.

However a vertical _taskbar_ requires that the taskbar controls on the
panel remain in horizontal, left-to-right (or R-to-L if that's how
your script works) orientation within a vertical panel that is
3/4/5/whatever rows wide.

Xfce calls this a "deskbar" and also supports vertically-oriented
controls. I find that useless myself, but whatever turns you on. I'm
not asking for anyone to lose anything. I don't want to take any
features away.
