I like your proposal. It is simple and neat. When I will have time, then
I will look at it.

> * Fits basic notion that "This window is annoying me, Ill make it small

> * Matches functionality of MS/Open Office - Excel/Word (people will

> split that you get rid of by resizing to 0.
> - But somebody needs to code it, and Jiri is probably a busy man, so I'm
> happy with whats there for now.
