Bug Description

The full screen mode (activated by F11) is quite useful in certain applications, e.g. Firefox and Terminal, but with the current setup there's no way to summon the launcher (nor the top panel) to do OS level actions.
I'd suggest that the Logo key should also work within apps in full screen mode.

-----------------------------------

Desired Resolution:
- all Unity keyboard shortcuts should remain active when in full screen mode.
- See " https://launchpadlibrarian.net/80511307/Super_key_shutcuts_overlay.png " for a list of all the currently supported Unity keyboard shortcuts

Yes, I think this has merit. For now:

 * the Super key should display the launcher even for full-screen apps
 * but the panel should not be introduced by Super
