That looks like a 4 Pivot Rollups, each wrapped in a Border - but yes,
it is pretty much the same thing.

I was thinking about keeping the basic mouse click behaviour of
Accordion, but making each click on the 'title bar' explicitly open or
close that panel.  So if the first panel is open, clicking on the
second one would leave the first open, but expand the second one.
I do like the idea of the SHIFT modifier key as a clean way to allow
'enhanced' Accordion behaviour (multiple open panels) alongside
traditional Accordion behaviour (single open panel).
