Option to vertically swap the video and data displays

I find it much easier to see the power data read out if it's lower down the screen. (I'm using a large display, so the top is quite a ways up the wall).
It's possible to "pop out" the video and rearrange windows so it's at the top, but this adds a bunch of faff (which I don't like - the biggest selling point or PeriPedal to me is the low faff!) and clutters screen with multiple window title bars. Also, on my computer at least, a popped-out non-fullscreen video has much much lower frame-rate (about 3 vs 30, at a guess).

A simple toggle or special keypress to put the data display below the video would be great.

I have my laptop set up in front of my bike and find it gets uncomfortable trying to keep looking up so high on the screen to see the gauge and cadence. I have it sitting as low as practical so I can reach it, but still get a little neck strain on longer rides.
