There were very few previous mentions of "task bar" in Emacs, but all
were written as "taskbar" rather than "task bar". I also think the
details here are likely to be OS-specific. I think "taskbar" is mainly a
MS-Windows term? I never hear it it connection with X, AFAIK; but this
could well be just my ignorance. Eg on X with XFCE, the equivalent would
be "panels", I guess, and these have zero affect: geometry == workarea.

"side bar" was never mentioned before now.

I would suggest maybe rewording this to be less definitive, and
basically just say that the precise details are likely to be
