I'm not an UI/usability expert, but I actually quite like the current
defaults. Since I know my panel, I know where everything is, so I can
perfectly tell apart the Firefox from the Devhelp icon. So I can
quickly click on the devhelp icon without the panel unfolding and
folding again. The unhide delay could be a bit faster, though.
But the way you propose it might be a bit more obvious indeed. I'll
leave that to the usability gurus (hi Matthew :) ).
Whatever is decided, it should either be "lower part still visible and
unhide delay" or "invisible and no unhide delay".
