property sidebar is a good candidate to implement in phase I. No need to
migrated every thing from Symphony sidebar, but start from some frequent
used buttons.
Another candidate we can consider maybe clipart/gallery.
And agree that we should provide interface for extension development.

I can see it is a big feature that requires a lot of UX/development/testing
effort. So I suggest to create a wiki under 4.0 planning
wiki<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/AOO+4.0+Release+Planning>to
consolidate and trace all related tasks and action items. We may also
need a branch to start ASAP.
