This is min-width, not width, which is why it's not 100%.  It keeps the
layout from being jumbled by a smaller browser window size.

To leave whitespace on the sides of the content; otherwise, the text bumps
up against the margins.

This is an aesthetic question, really - the reason it's there is to
provide a visual cue on the width and shape of the side bar without having
to explicitly outline that area.  It also keeps the logo visually anchored
in that space.

Delete it.  It'll still be there in git, if it was needed later.

Nobody's turned it off yet?  I don't recall a specific reason.

I'm far more interested in seeing more content added than messing with the
layout at this point - it will benefit all of us to a much greater degree.
