For anyone interested in trying this out, I made a patch that
implements this way of handling fullscreen windows.

It should work with vanilla dwm. (r1586)

It just replaces the setfullscreen function so the bar is hidden and
the client is focused in monocle view.
Windows usually don't ask for fullscreen when I don't want them too
but maybe that's just me.
