Hmm. It seems to me, that there will be too small space at right and at bottom 
of master window to run such layouts as Grid. Then, any layout runs in a 
rectangle, but here we have complex-shaped area... May be, this layout should 
include special logic for, say, (given width) <= 1/2 ?..

This is good suggestion, I think. I'll try to add such logic in my layout.

WBR, Portnov.
