Works in MetaCard too. :)

FWIW, it may be useful to just use a disclosure pane for things you 
might otherwise use a drawer for.  A lot of OS X apps use expanding 
panels with a disclosure triangle, and the convention is popular on most 
other modern GUIs as well.

Drawers are great for making a Mac-only app, but they're foreign to 
other OSes and the tradeoffs with using a disclosure pane are few if any 
at all.
