Just fyi, this feature also has been discussed during last gsoc.
Back then I wrote some code that allows to hide/show the left pane with a
single mouseclick, and I think I also built resizing.

But I was asked by another gsoc student to revert my changes because he
worked on some overall recoding of the frames part. There were some issues
that hindered him to push it to master, but I don't remember what it was.
