Comment (by melchoyce):

 Replying to [comment:76 westonruter]:
 > What about making it so that the available widgets list container has a
 `max-height` of 100% minus the height of the Inactive Widgets accordion
 label? The list of available widgets can then scroll with the Inactive
 Widgets accordion label always visible below the scrolling list? This is
 somewhat similar to how the accordions in the available nav menu items
 panel are done, except there each post type has a fixed height and isn't
 stretched to full the available vertical space.

 Rather than hacking on heights, I'd rather just show the accordion at the
 top. Seems simpler, cleaner, and less prone to breaking on smaller

 I'll post an updated mockup soon.
