Cell brackets on left ?

A colleague new to Mathematica asked if there was any way to put the cell brackets on the left side of the notebook instead of the right. He was having difficulty reading a title on the left and then moving across a large expanse of white space to find the corresponding bracket on the right to open it up, and asked if it wouldn't make more sense to have the brackets on the left where they would be close to the content of the cell. After browsing around the options inspector and stylesheet editor, I'm pretty sure there isn't an option to do that, but I'm wondering if that wouldn't be a useful option to have. Mike Burns
