Do stacks have controllable levels?

  It isn't exactly the look you are describing but what about using  
the revChangeWindowSize command (with slide) in order to simulate  
closing and reopening "Panel x"   Panel x could consist of  multiple  
groups that could be hidden and shown as needed.  The main window  
could expand or shrink in order to expose or hide the "Panelx" group(s)

Also, though not cross platform,
     drawer stack "Panelx" at right in stack "LargeWindow"
should work
