The current fullscreenEventHook simply fullfloats the window and tiles it
when it requests to unfullscreen, which is a bit questionable since the
window might not have been tiled before it was fullscreened.

I am currently experimenting with broadcasting a layout message instead of
fullfloating it, so that the layout itself (or a layout modifier) can  
fullscreening. This lets you do neat things like making the window  
only if it is focused. However, floating windows are event harder to  
handle in
this mode.

In conclusion, I'd prefer if it was kept out of the default for now.
