Look at the code for ion3. It has been useful for me in the past in
figuring out the "correct" way to do something, since it is generally
necessary not only to support what is actually stated in certain
specifications, but also to support certain non-standard behaviors that
certain programs do anyway. The ion3 code is quite well-written,
and seems to support fullscreen properly and without bugs.
