I *really* like the idea of having a right-hand pane available showing
properties around the current point -- it could include properties from
the PROPERTIES drawer, from the structure returned by
`org-element-property', text properties, and maybe properties of the
current headline parent. I'm sort of envisioning what you get from the
"inspect element" command in Firefox.

For the left-hand pane, org-toc and org-panel in the contrib directory
(or even the org-goto interface) might provide some inspiration.

Ugh, sounds like a lot of work.
