I hope not. Having the ability to hide the full Deck & Tab bar, or when just
the Tab bar is showing, with the Hide/Show widget grips is a really nice
function of the Sidebar GUI. 

Function is not the same manipulating from the View menu.

Currently, when collapsed or hidden the Sidebar remains loaded with the content
panel selected, and is simply unhidden by the grip action. 

Also while hidden it responds to changes in content panel, meaning you can
reopen it showing a content panel not active when it was hidden. 

And when manipulated from the View -> Sidebar it currently is being closed. And
is reloaded and set back to its default, i.e. opens the Properties panel.

So yes some of the function can be duplicated, but it is not as clean as with
the Hide/Show grip widgets.
