The tree for pages and the security section can easily get larger than the available width.
jQuery layout supports resizing panels out of the box: http://www.bramstein.com/projects/jlayout/borderlayout-resize.html
We just need to enable it, and come up with a nice way to visualise the drag handles.
In case performance gets too slow in terms of redraws, the "ghost" mode in jQuery UI resizeable might help: http://jqueryui.com/demos/resizable/#visual-feedback

The new width would need to be saved and restored from a cookie, otherwise its a bit pointless :)

Removing milestone; trimming milestones down to bare essentials in the lead-up to launch. By all means work on this if you wish, I'm just trying to get a sense of what we can't live without.
