Comment (by deryni):

 I know that my window manager of choice, ion3, supports similar
 functionality to this (not docked to the side of the side of the screen
 necessarily, rather freely placed floating windows that can be summoned
 and dismissed on a whim). I believe similar functionality can be gotten
 from fvwm2, and it at least used to be possible to do this sort of thing
 with enlightenment (I don't know if you still can or not, I haven't looked
 at enlightenment in ages). I imagine a small handful of other window
 managers (stumpwm, ratpoison, wmii, dwm, awesome) might also be able to do
 this, though I don't know about any of them for sure.

 As for Windows, it is rather unfortunate that the window management
 environment there is absolutely anemic and mostly unfixable. Though you
 may want to look into autohotkey, as it may provide the necessary bits to
 allow something of this sort to be done.
