Maximize Windows to all possible area....

Registered by encompass on 2007-10-21

It would be nice to implement a feature so that windows could maximize to the most available area. Many programs with "widget windows" could take advantage of this... most notably gimp. You ahve your tools where ever you like them. When you click this button or activate this feature... the window will maximize to the most it can without overlapping any other windows.
Programs that come to mind that could use this feature:
Gimp
Dia
Other programs your working with that have a chat window on the right. For exampe pidgin on the right and you max-to-area your document not overlapping everything.
I think of it as a mix between ION and Metacity/compiz.
