I recently discovered the keyboard shortcut for metacity's "full screen" option, where a window is fully maximised with titlebar and border hidden. I like this mode a lot, and for one of my systems would like to make it the default for all new windows. How would I do that?

See this post, which indicates how to do it interactively. My thought is that you may be able to write a script using wmctrl to monitor newly opened windows and set fullscreen on them. Then, just add this script to your GNOME startup.

I'm am now using Ubuntu's "maximus" utility to do this for me.
