Didnt follow.

Regression bug filed for this issue (bug 109385).

Heiko and I have also filed similar bugs about the minimum size that havent
been resolved yet, but the maximum width is already a set thing.

Never said it was unusable, only said it was non-optimal because of the space
issues as tested on my laptop (1366x768) and desktop (1440x900).

> Currently there is not if there is no agreement on making some changes. 

Seems most UX people are in agreement and i'm the lone hold out.

Opening and hiding the deck contextually is bad UX.

> Only the first time you open these apps. Then it is totally optional.

Completely incorrect from my testing of the apps i mentioned.

I'll refrain from any more comments and wait for the discussion to be brought
to a future design meeting.
