KG01 - This is an important point. Any enhancements to the existing AOO
sidebar should leverage the best user experience elements from both
Symphony and AOO. In addition, while we are updating this code we can
address any other known issues.

I have already completed an analysis of each tool's sidebar, strengths and
weaknesses and captured some recommendations.

See the analysis doc on the Dockable Task Pane (Side bar) Design
Exploration page<http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/AOO_4.0_Dockable_Task_Pane_%28Task_Bar%29_Design_Exploration>on
the AOO UX wiki.
