How do you approach the issue of panning at mix time?

Do you like mono tracks panned wide, LCR, stereo tracks spread?
(...Or a combo of these?)
...And when you DO have a stereo source, do you often pan the two channels separately?
(...Like at positions other than hard-left/right?)

I normally pan mono signals L-C-R and stereo signals (like stereo Synths ) I may or may not pan L-R but more often than not I will do 9 and 3 o'clock . What is important to me i.e. clarity .
I want to have a mix that sounds clear and all the parts can be heard in such a way that the song is getting what it needs for it to work. I try not to "over record" and I try to combine parts so
they cover all the ground rhythmically, tone wise and musically. One good track is better in my view then five. One thing I loved about George Martins productions was how economical they were.
Today people lay down 125 tracks when 16 (or less ) would probably do. As I go on I try to lay down tracks that cover a lot of ground instead of a bunch of tracks that ultimately say nothing.
