So many times im at odds with the layout of Craft Fields in the CMS, where from a usability and user interaction stand point I feel the layout can be way better and even mimic the front end result.

Long and short is, can I edit the layout of fields in the CMS.

The image below is a matrix, but only allows to select how much of an element is take un HORIZONNTALLY

enter image description here

The ideal here would also to have a vatical selection in the CMS:

I know thats a hell of alot to ask from the guys at Pixel and Tonic - so instead, im worndering if there is a way for me to acsess this myself, using some custom CMS rules for the CMS.

Pointing me in the right direction would be great :)

Thanks - W
