I think it's fair to say that the sitemap in PW is the "heart of the beast" - and as such, I feel that this could be improved in the following way:
I'd like to see the sitemap (and possibly the primary admin shortcuts) stay docked on the left side of the screen - and have the sitemap maintain state, e.g. avoid reloading it on every request, and avoid having the sitemap "forget" what was open and closed.
For the most part, the admin interfaces leave plenty of horizontal screen real-estate - and if the sitemap was permanently docked on the left and would collapse to a thin vertical ribbon, you could still use 98% of the page width for the admin-interface.
This would probably also reduce load-time on admin pages somewhat, as the individual screens would no longer need to render the primary navigation and traverse the sitemap.
Perhaps this is a theme-job. If so, I'd like to hear from someone who has written a theme, do you think this is feasible without making changes to the core? Can a theme diverge from the usual workflow in this way?
