Makes sense as we already have a similar behaviour called "autohide" except 
that it affects the whole panel.

Sounds ok but makes it harder for people who want special sizes. OTOH 
non-standard kicker-size usually looks odd because there is no icon-size that 
fits well into the panel.

Btw, when will we get a kicker that allows any possible length (is that hard 
to code?)? The percentage slider is way too unprecise.
