Actually, I wouldn't mind if a small popup window came up maximized as
well. That's generally what happened in "stacked" and "maxed" modes of
wmii. It would be useful for me to be able to swap clients in maxed mode
of dwm just as you can swap them in zoomed mode of dwm by using
MOD_RETURN. I would think of MOD_M as toggling between "zoomed" and
"maxed" modes.
