--- Comment #22 from Tom Colley <[hidden email]> ---
I support the comments by [hidden email], Jean-Baptiste Faure and V
Stuart Foote (Comments 18-21). The comments recognise a design issue which is
about efficient and flexible use of screen real estate. I also appreciate that
these concerns may be outside of the original design intentions for the sidebar
(Samuel Mehrbrodt, Comment 17 and Yousuf (Jay) Philips, Comment 12). The
original conception and development of the sidebar is clearly valuable and a
credit to those involved - thank you! Achieving the full realisation of that
value is what I think is driving the current discussion - discussion about how
to take the sidebar further so that significant design issues are resolved.
This is likely to make the sidebar a truly great feature. So, can we now move
on, acknowledging that original design intentions were/are great and can evolve
to resolve the now-clearly-evident design issues?
