If you want to see only one level below, you can tap&hold stylus at
dialog titlebar which makes it 'invisible'. Moving dialogs on the screen
with Matchbox is possible (with run-time switches given on startup) but
our UI has been designed to be more static, we don't see the benefits of
moving the dialog as it's modal to application anyway (you cannot access
the application).
