I know that it works by sticking the client in floating mode and
aligning it just right (or at least that is how it worked when I looked
at the code last, which was at least 9 months ago, perhaps it has
changed since then, but it seems that it hasn't from your comment.) The
point is that the way it _should_ work is that there is some sort of
actual fullscreen flag or something like that, or at least a way to
implement a fullscreen-like mode from the wmiirc program (perhaps via a
way to disable window decorations on a particular frame).
