The commands are exactly what I want, but don't work properly with a 
multi-monitor setup.
Maximize & restore will jump the frame from left monitor to right & vice versa. 
 It doesn't appear to be tracking the original location either.
So, for example, when I maximize a frame in the left monitor(which does not 
have a menu bar), the frame is moved to the right monitor, maximized for that 
monitor, and igores the menu bar so oversizes the frame.
