As Ezio noted, the coming versions of the Python 3 documentation provide a way to collapse the sidebar completely. Perhaps a min-width should be specified, but I'm not convinced that's a good idea.
The sidebar problem is fairly significant, and the collapsing sidebar alone isn't sufficient. The sidebar is useful since it's the only overall navigation structure (as opposed to the direct links embedded in the content), but there's no real need to ensure it gets "enough" width. I'd rather see a simple adjustment as recommended by Christopher Dunn.
I appreciate Ezio's in making the sidebar collapsible, but I think that's just the first step. The sidebar is certainly the most contentious element of the new design, and the most difficult to get right.
