I understand. The only problem is toolbar real estate is too valuable.
But your suggestion recalls the original design of xffm with sidebar, so
concept is rescued. If you check out the current CVS you can pop up an
optional sidebar by clicking with mouse button_3 on one of the popup
toolbars: this currently makes available 6 different sidebars. Clicking
again --or click button3 on the sidebar-- will make it go away.
Restoring the sidebar state from session to session is not implemented. 

I don't know if this will suit your needs, but the new behaviour is
really cool and scarce code to implement. I like it. Thanks for the
idea. :-)
