Thanks Jay for expressing my point more clearly and in more details. However, I
would like to point out that there's nothing special in particular about a
half-maximize, but the sidebar(s) should be adaptive depending on the available
vertical and horizontal space. For example, in a tablet like surface, there
might already be too limited space for the sidebar to come up by default even
when maximized.

I'll extend this problem a bit more by suggesting a case where the space is not
strictly speaking limited, but an adaptive sidebar can be of use nonetheless.
When using book view or two-page view in Writer (at ~75% zoom), opening the
sidebar abruptly forces the document into one-page view. Instead, the sidebar
could be drawn over the pages, leaving the viewport shape unchanged. Further,
the sidebar could be drawn on the opposite side of the page where the cursor
currently is, so that that page is left unhindered.

This discussion can go on, adding further design problems as they come up. So
if you believe I should file a separate bug for each of them, or discuss it
somewhere else, like the Redmine, please let me know.
