Well, here's my 2¢ worth ---
a slight mod to the Shaker style, maybe increase the angle of the taper in the back and put one on the front, too
. I think it looks good and increases stability from a practical standpoint.
Have a look at this rough sketch.

I don't know if it's a good idea, but maybe the sides could be splayed a bit, too, which would certainly make for interesting angled dovetails, no? Pardon the poor sketch.

Of course, it would help if I actually made one of these things! Thanks, again, Tommy, for the DVD. (The shop is almost straightened up, so I can start soon!)
