i thought about that too, actually it's pretty easy:
you can do it in view.c:dotile() (in the loop you should check for "n
== 1" then set client size to the window area size (waw,wah))

a nicer solution is to do it in client.c:resize()
actually if a window is fullscreen sized, the border is not drawn:

if(c->w == sw && c->h == sh)
        wc.border_width = 0;
        wc.border_width = BORDERPX;
XConfigureWindow(dpy, c->win, CWX | CWY | CWWidth | CWHeight |
CWBorderWidth, &wc);

the only problem is c->w == sw won't happen since we always set c->w =
so imho the test should be more like:

if(c->w >= waw - 2*BORDERPX && c->h >= wah - 2*BORDERPX)

        c->w = sw;
        c->h = sh
        wc.border_width = 0;

(in this case the border will disappear from floating windows as well
if they are "very big", which is good imho)
