Given 40 is the default, a option for 20 and 40 might have been useful :P Mine however is the default 40

The options for polls may not always make sense, but the data that I get will always be useful.

How do you define "primary shelf"?

I have four shelves. Left-middle (40px), bottom-left (152px), bottom-right (152px), and bottom-middle (40px). They each have their specific use. None are what I'd consider "primary".

My non-autohide shelves are 28px. I have found that on 15,6" screens larger is OK, but smaller laptop screens don't just give more screen area, but look better as well. My autohide, left-side shelf is 40px as I recall.

If you were to ask me for a default, I would clearly say 40px or less.

Should it really be measured in pixels? People who uses retina-like displays will have a much bigger pixel size

I agree with davek, define "primary shelf", as I don't consider either one to have any significance over the other one. I only have two coz I needed some things to be bigger than others. So one is 32 pixels, the other is either 100 or 104 (due to the rounding bug in the pager). Which puts mine outside of the range at both ends of your scale. lol
