How do I find out the maximum extent that a morph can be set to,
without this impacting the current extent of its owner morph?

(I wasn't able to find a definitive answer on the newbies' list was
able to help; trying again on this one)
I have a RectangleMorph instance (used as a stickie note's title bar)
that contains 3 submorphs:
1. a SimpleButtonMorph, to trigger collapse/expansion of the stickie
note (collapsed = stickie note's editor submorph hidden)
2. a StringMorph that contains a summary -- a contracted copy -- of
the stickie note's editor's contents. I would like the length of that
summary to depend on the width of the stickie note's title bar.
3. a StringMorph instance that is set to the last modification date
of the stickie note.
So, question: how do I determine the maximum space that #2 can occupy
before provoking a resize of the stickie note, and given that stickie
note widths are left to user discretion, i.e., can and will vary.
