Setting up a Toggleable Side Panel in KDE Plasma 6

Since a brief tryst with Ubuntu Budgie Edition, I’ve dearly missed its Raven side-panel, a special panel on the side of the screen that can be opened and closed with a click. As someone who needs a clean, minimal desktop, the workflow is just too perfect — when you have two or three widgets that you use frequently, but not frequently enough that they warrant permanent homes on a main panel, just stuff them into a disappearing side-panel that can be called with a quick key-combination or by clicking on an icon; It’s a great way to keep things out of the way, but within reach, without having a permanently cluttered system tray that you might want to keep clear for things like email notifications.
