indicator when drag resizing Deck is about to collapse closed

(In reply to Jay Philips from comment #6)
> So is a minimum width agreeable.

Behavior now is that while we drag the Deck's width narrower at a point the GUI
switches to a close action for the Deck--a Right pointing arrow appears--and
release of the drag colapses the deck.

This complements action of a click on the current Tabbar button which collapses
the deck for the current content panel(s), or if a different Tabbar button will
toggle the Deck to that tab's content panels(s).

The full collapse of the Deck with a click on its Tabbar button seems correct

A drag resize to minimum size -> then collapse (looks to transition when last
widget of the specific content panel(s) open has been obscured) also seems
correct -- reopening of deck to that same content panel opens it to a "minimum
width", for that content panel. And changing the Deck to one of the other
Content panel(s) with a Tabbar click retains the prior "minimum width".

The Navigator and Manage Changes content panels seem to incorrectly not allow
resize of the deck to point of colapse, but they do honor the "minimum width"
if set from another content panel active in the Deck.

All that being said, the current configuration of allowing both a "minimum
width" (e.g. last fully exposed widget) prior to collapse of the Deck, and a
"maximum width" independently for each Content panel continues to make sense.
Especially if we are able to improve function of the Sidebar with per-user
customization of bug 67770, and the other issues of comment 1.

So NO, would not agree to a single minimum width applied to Decks of "all"
content panels--but that said, there is room to improve how each decks minimum
width (prior to collapse) is determined.
