Cool thing, especially sheets are totally sweet idea, but I have some
concerns regarding drawers. Back in pre-aqua, QTPlayer 4.0[1] days, when
Apple was only introducing drawers (using them for playlists), they were
quite cumbersome from UI POV. They had serious problems with screen real
estate, which influenced how much of drawer is visible, and if there
wasn't enough space, they wouldn't show up at all. Now that drawers seem
standard and heavily used part of OSX, are these issues somehow solved?

[1] It's actually hard to believe it was made by apple, it sucked so
hard in UI area.
