Hi Laslo!

No, of course it is not our fault... Nevertheless, I think even users
of dwm would find it easier to just touch the f key and have
fullscreen toggle on and off.

Look, my desktop/wm is XFCE, and by pressing Alt-F11 I get fullscreen
on and off everywhere. But mnemonics and lazyness push me once and
again to try the f key. It's just simpler, it's just less effort.

The code overhead for adding this to "sent", both in source and in the
executable, is absolutely minimal.

I still think this change would make "sent" a bit better.

Don't you think it's worth it?
