    I as the user am in a much better position to decide if I want to see a

    want both, then I will open 2 windows and place them side by side, and
    drag links from the navigation window to the file window.  If I'm not in
    the mood for this, and know exactly where I'm going, then I can leave only
    one window open.

    The point is that the user should decide this, not the author.

There's only so much you as the end user can configure, until you start
becoming the programmer.  Programmers have to make decisions, and these
decisions tend to lean into any direction that involves code reuse.
