I'm right there with you. Moving the servo to the side offers several other improved design opportunities like more compact design, higher mechanical advantage, and increased frame to rod engagement for improved stiffness while extended. Since I kicked these out I've wanted to go through and refine the design and make several configurations for a range of sizes. Once I worked up the proof of concept used here I knew there was a lot of potential but I just haven't had the time required to really flesh it out.
