Hi Tmi,

The fluid wrapping works only for text. Sometimes we need to have larger
images in documentation or we have a blog post with a larger image on the
planet page. Now we hack around it by forcing the first item on the page
to a smaller size.

Also, we sometimes need to include from external applications, so we only
wrap the page header and footer around it. It would be nice if the content
then would fill the body and not leave an empty sidebar.
