    There is a difference between requesting that the window take up as
much space as possible and requesting that the window truly obscure all
other windows. Assuming that because a client asked for a window the
size of the screen that it doesn't want to be treated as a normal window
is reading to much into the client's intentions.

    You're free to implement whatever you want, but don't expect to win
too many converts if wmii tries to be "too smart".
