By fullscreen I mean no taskbar, emacs take all the screen estate.

The current way to switch to this mode is 

(set-frame-parameter nil 'fullscreen 'fullboth)

However this is very ambiguous, it does fullscreen on Gnome and
maximise on Mac and Windows.

I propose a new API to solve the ambiguity:

(fullscreen-mode 1)

Turns on fullscreen mode. We can set a variable of the same name to
check the state. Remove the hook mode in Gnome that should not really
be there.

What do people think? I am willing to spend time coding it.

Thank you in advance for your comments.
