This is where the push-pin is a real win. Another example in GIMP is docking pallettes -- the only way you can tell that this is possible is because GIMP starts with some pallettes already docked. Or because you read about it in "tip of the day", which really ought to have l"learn more" links into the documentation, so that e.g tear-off menus could be explained.
