I would have thought that would be even more obtrusive for those with
small screens as it would overlap content on the left-hand side and
constantly get in the way.  If you consider that it can't be in the
header on the left-hand-side as it would appear in front of the logo,
then it would have to go further down, and as soon as you begin
scrolling it looks odd being part-way down the page.

I'm going to remove it anyway.  Was just an idea.
