Many window managers (compiz included) allows to maximize window vertically or horizontally by pressing middle or right mouse button on maximize button. Unity 2D lacks this.

John, do you want to look into how important it is to have this feature?

The window manager Metacity (that Unity 2D uses) can support this.

Use "gconf-editor" to navigate to the keys:
/app/metacity/general/action_middle_click_titlebar
/app/metacity/general/action_right_click_titlebar

You can set the values of these keys to settings like "toggle_maximize_vertically" and "toggle_maximize_horizontally" to get exactly what you want.
