Okay, I'll set up the sidebar to be unlocked by default.
However, we still need to decide what should go in the distributed
version of the SideBar -- i.e., what should an admin see in the
sidebar when a new installation is started.  (Notably, the distributed 
SideBar should *not* be the same as the sidebar that appears on 
pmwiki.org, which has other purposes to fulfill.)

I've started a sample sidebar at http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/SideBar .
All are welcome to edit it and make improvements/suggestions there --
once we have a workable consensus I'll put it into the distribution
as an unlocked page.

A related note:  I'm wanting to eliminate the use of <h1>'s
in many of PmWiki's default pages.  Many of the semantic
web initiatives are establishing a convention that a page
should have only one <h1> tag in it, typically to highlight
the page's title.  Thus, the section headings in the sidebar
and in the edit form should probably be rendered as <h2>'s
or lower.
