Make the Viewer TOC touch friendly

Bug Description

The Viewer can be navigated using touch gestures with a laptop that has a touch screen. However, the Table of Contents isn't touch friendly.

It cannot be opened with a swipe from the left for example.

Also, once it is open, you cannot scroll it with touch swiping.

I suggest the implementation of these two gestures to make the Viewer more touch compatible.

Calibre 5.38 on Ubuntu 21.10 running on a laptop with a touchscreen.

swiping is used for changing pages, that's not going to change. However,
adding touch scroll to the toc highlights and search panels is worth
