Something that I wonder about the maximus approach... If you maximize
the window when it's already mapped, won't you get a visible redraw?

The advantage of the maximus approach to me is that you get
applications like firefox to run fullscreen without code changes.
Though stuff like gimp or the gnome calculator (try to maximize it on
your desktop) will break.
