wine's fullscreen code has no effect on metacity

Something I think I may have suggested long ago is some sort of "WINE 
hints" that WMs could implement; in essence, have calls to the WM that 
map to Windows API calls exactly and try to have the same semantics. IOW 
implement the windows API in conjunction with the WM.

This is probably the only way to make things 100%, 100% always work 
right; because it gets past the "impedance mismatch" between how native 
X apps work and how windows API apps work by giving them different 

I wouldn't know how to do this, but it's an idea.
