I think the concept with launcher autohide should be rethought.
It doesn't appear soon enough when needed and, ironically, when not needed
it appears too soon.
I don't think it can be solved by merely adjusting timeouts.

I have previously suggested half-hidden launcher and would like to raise
that idea again.

I am not a good graphics designer, but you'll get the idea:

 - while the icons are mostly hidden, they are still fairly recognizable.
 - it takes half of the size of a normal launcher, so can be left always

It doesn't have to look like a shelf, it just so happened that shelf looked
best out of my poor drawings, so I am attaching this.
