I did see the volume handling message but I just thought this might be a
nice option or feature to go along with it.  

I am not stuck on the rigid sidebar concept.  Hope I did not give that
impression.  A pull-down menu like the current go menu or a thin bar on
the bottom or underneath the file -- edit -- etc.. choices would be just
as effective and save real estate at the same time.  

It is cool.  It was just a thought.
