do you mean like this:?

(portlets view)

I've added a theme switcher so it's now easy to add / remove portlets on 
the front page. But the main grid structure should not be modified. So 
it is more a matter of agreeing on the grid structure than on its actual 
contents that can be changed afterwards.

there is now :

| box1 | box2 | box3 |

| box4 | box5        |

vertical lengths for boxes inside a same slot are dependent on their 
contents and it's almost impossible to control it in a simple way, but 
having two rows make it possible to realign the boxes somewhere at the 
middle of the page (latest site updates, shortcuts).
