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.
