This is a beautiful example of the kind of simple, terse, plain-English, 
easy to remember statement that ought to go in a "Warnings" or "Notes" 
or something section of the Help messages for Row and GraphicsRow.

[The kind of section argued for in earlier debates on this NG.]

I'll grant that this information is there in these Help messages as they 
stand (I just looked at both of them) -- but it ain't easy to pull it 
out of them, quickly and clearly, especially for an "ordinary user".
