As Anselm pointed out, you probably want to hold down your modifier key
(default Alt) and use mouse buttons. A "maximize" could probably be
written by raising whatever window's clicked on, and switching to
monocle ([M]) layout.

I actually used to run gimp under ion in its equivalent of tiled (=[])
mode. It's not so bad, really. I have a key bound to "toggle between
monocle and tiled" that would make this pretty straightforward. But it
seems like whenever I need to use Gimp, my wife is logged in and using
Metacity, so I haven't had the opportunity to try.
