Latest trunk remembers which menus you have open.  It doesn't close
all but the latest two, however.  That'd be interesting to user test.

I would love a patch that implements drag-and-drop and show/hide for
the dashboard.  For now, the patch would need to use our current box
styling to maintain consistency.  I'd like to see us move to something
like your box styling, however.
