one requirement to that is to first implement sane animation stuff which
is most likely to be up next (at this rate I'll never get to hacking on

the other thing is that how would the panel know how wide it should do
itself ... one idea is to get a hint from the root window with the
size appropriate to the side of the screen it's snapped to ...

another solution involves a little change to window maker itself ... if
it in itself could avoid the panel (given the apnel will set some sort
of hint special to a panel)
