I don't get the issue with the power being on the "wrong side" as these
chips are symmetrical, one could just turn it around and have the power
pins facing the "right direction."  What I do worry about is interaction
between opamps in the same package.  Depending on what you're doing it may
indeed be better to use a few duals rather than quads.  In the real world,
isolation between Opamps in the same package can be less ideal than the
specs say.
