Allow absolute sizing for SplitContainer

It would be nice to have a way to specify an absolute sizing for a pane in a SplitContainer?. The sizeShare attribute currently only supports a percentage value. One use case would be similar to the Windows Explorer with a pane on the left that can be resized by dragging the splitter, but remains a fixed size when the window is resized.

Ideally, the sizing method would allow all the same dimensioning values supported in CSS (em, in, cm, px, %, etc). To allow for variable units for separate panes, you could allow one or more of the panes to be auto sized to take up the remaining space similar to the * dimension for a frameset.

If you don't need to resize the panel, you can set the sizeMin to say 200px and set the sizeShare to 0 That panel then won't resize as the SplitContainer? is resized, however you cannot size the panel smaller than the sizeMin you set so not what you are after.

Why milestone is changed from 0.4 to 0.5. This is not a complex task. I've extended SplitContainer? to support px or % units for sizeShare. If is needed I can add support for other parameters and publish here as patch.

No, sorry, I don't want to support this in Dijit. The SplitContainer? code is complex enough as it is.
