I have noticed something about T-tailed airliners that has me wondering.  
Planes Like the MD80 and 727 appear to use stabilators that do not move 
symetrically.  I often see them on the ground with one stab cocked up or down 
more than the other.  Is this design for extra roll control/trim?  Something 
else?

Thanks in advance.
