Try "Full screen maximization" in Window Maker anyday ;-)

Yes, it can be binded to a key, or set as default, even for all apps
(ratpoison-ish setup). And no, it doesn't gives you the anti-aliased
fonts gnome-terminal and konsole can.

Anyways, being a dockapp junkie myself (I *HAVE* to see all that info
(or junk) AT ONCE!), I rarely leave X. Except when puttying-in from
consumer-grade boxes and their consumer-grade OSes which have no ootb X
support.

How many C++ programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
      You're still thinking procedurally. A properly designed light bulb
object would inherit a change method from a generic light bulb class, so 
all you'd have to do is send a light bulb change message.
