Bug Description

Unity/compiz allows you to maximize a window completely, or only horizontally or vertically. Title bar is hidden/put onto the panel only when maximized completely. To optimize the use of my screen, I'd like the title bar to be hidden as well on vertical maximize.

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04

2) apt-cache policy unity
  Installed: 5.8.0-0ubuntu2
  Candidate: 5.8.0-0ubuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 5.8.0-0ubuntu2 0
        500 precise/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

apt-cache policy compiz
  Installed: 1:
  Candidate: 1:
  Version table:
 *** 1: 0
        500 precise/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) When I maximize a window vertically (e.g. by middle-clicking the maximize button), I expect the title bar to be hidden, just as it is when completely maximizing (left-click button).

4) The window is maximized vertically, but the title bar remains in place, using up some of those very precious vertical pixels on my so-called widescreen laptop.
