I created a module which extends the possibilities of ModelAdmin, in order to be able to create custom LeftAndMains without extending LeftAndMain directly, but to use the power of ModelAdmin.
Some Silverstripers already knows this from the Google dev list and the IRC channel and I think it can be usefull for a wider audience.
PanelModelAdmin allows a flexible manner to devide the left sidebar in seperate searchpanels, menulists or custom panels which all can have their own managed DataObjects. In this way you have more flexibility to organize your DataObject management.
See this slideshare for how it looks and what it can do:
Create custom panels for the sidebar
Create custom (nested) menulists (with parent => child relations)
Create custom panels to show whatever you want (plain content, rss etc.)
Use TableListField, TableField or ComplexTableField for the ResultsField (DOM support is in progress).
Show a default ResultsForm on the initial view of the admin panel.
Show custom content, instead of a ResultsTable ( you can use this to show for example a Calendar, Dashboard or whatever you put in your DataObject).
Obeys canView, canEdit, canDelete and canCreate on each record instead of only the complete set (i.e. hide rows that authors are not allowed to see, or limit the amount of records they can create).
There are still some little refinements to do, but on a custom NewsLetter and Webshop module it works solid.
You can checkout the module from svn on:
A sample implementation can be found on:
Or download attached files
I would like to know what you think of it and if you have any improvements let me know!

Hey Martijn, regarding that known issue of: Sometimes the wrong buttons are displayed in the ResultsForm and EditForm.
When I click to edit a record in the first 10 results without clicking to view the next 10 results or triggering an AJAX call like that, the buttons display correctly. I couldn't easily find where the buttons were being hidden, hope that helps though.

Just trying this out. I'm using both the panelmodeladmin and the productadmin running on the latest branches/2.4. When trying to add a new customer I get this error.
ERROR [User Error]: Couldn't run query:
SELECT "OrderItem"."ClassName", "OrderItem"."Created", "OrderItem"."LastEdited", "OrderItem"."Title", "OrderItem"."ProductID", "OrderItem"."ID", CASE WHEN "OrderItem"."ClassName" IS NOT NULL THEN "OrderItem"."ClassName" ELSE 'OrderItem' END AS "RecordClassName"
WHERE ("ParentID" = 2)
LIMIT 10 OFFSET 0
Unknown column 'ParentID' in 'where clause'
