You assume too much. In fact the majority of photos that professionals and
quality conscious amateurs (which seem to be the intended target group of
users) are working on are originating in 3:2 and 2:3 aspect ratio as this is
the main aspect ratio that current DSLR are working with... But final results
may well be in all sorts of aspect ratios. The important thing is that
vertical space is truly at a premium but there is no rule that a toolbar
needs to be placed horizontally when in fact a toolbar works equally well
when placed at either side of the image.

Having the toolbox docked is one of the things that would render a toolbar
redundant. So yes, this is a working solution that I would look forward to.
