Why not just put `maximize-frame' in `emacs-startup-hook'?

I don't know what the current frame-maximizing or full-screen support is for
`emacs -Q'.  And yes, I realize that a maximized frame is not the same as

But `maximize-frame' is available here, at least:

Was that "same for F1"?  "save (except) for F1"?
Do you want to unbind `f1'?

At least it is bound to a prefix key, not wasted on a single command that is not
repeatable.  There are 4 key bindings for that prefix key (but only 3 commands).

But yes, I would probably rather see the two-column stuff moved to a
harder-to-use prefix key.  But I say that out of ignorance - I don't use it or
know much about it, and because that prefix is used for only 3 commands.
