Isn't fullscreen display of some application window something the window
manager should deal with, not the application itself?  For example in
KDE or stumpwm you can make any window fullscreen (via a window menu or
a keybinding), and I'm sure it's the same for GNOME and most/all other

The only situation where I can imagine that a application side command
is useful, is when you don't use a window manager at all and your
.xinitrc only starts emacs.  But then one could use the -g option for
the same effect...
