Full screen mode

Nicholas Cole
This is a feature request! Would it be possible to create a "full
screen" mode for gvim on OS X.  I imagine pressing a key combination
and having the vim window fill the whole screen (without any
decoration).  Some editors on the mac do have similar features, and
they can be quite useful.

Does that sound possible?

Best wishes,

Nicholas

Use gvim/X11 as your window manager, plus maximize X11?

I meant, run X11.app in Fullscreen mode (it's in the preferences)

Well, quite, but it would be nicer to have in the native version. :-)
