I guess it is all a matter of which is more stupid. I liked seeing the alternator on top. On my V6 Contour, changing the alternator was a 5.5 -6 hour job!
Maybe GM borrowed the engineer from Ford of Europe?

I don't think the PS pump placement is too bad, just a little far away... Speaking of that I should get a long neck funnel and check my power steering fluid... Havent done that in a long time...LOL

And yes the alternator on the 3800'* are a pretty easy swap

A dollar store turkey baster is a good way to remove excess fluid when you overfill...
