- Size of hovered column = dependent on mouse location
- Size of other columns = divided over the rest, the one closest to mouse being the biggest

The OSX dock is another example of this.

Apple has a system like that called AutoLayout but I think we need something a tad simpler. Ralph has some great examples of a system that we could base it on:
