this will break the plugin api for document listing plugins.  So it
would be possible to implement this in the standard doc listing, there
is both the overhead of changing the behavior of the browser that's
managing those plusing as well as the plugins that hook into it to
e.g. display some property of the documents.

It's probably best to do a POC first to figure these issues out and
assess the impact on existing plugins (doc listing column providers
and picker/editor plugins).  Then we can estimate the actual work
involved and port existing plugins to the new model.

So, as I've said before, it will not be hard if you're ok with a
hardcoded solution.  (fixed sections, fixed columns, no search, those
kind of limitations)

cheers, Frank
