i'd need to add code that so there is a bindable action. making it over
fullscreen windows means the top bar actually needs to move and change stacking
while apps are in fullscreen. though.. what you want is really below...

hmm i think you want another feature. i added this recently - syscon. its the
"system control" module that presents a middle-of-the-screen popup with "things
you can do" one of them is actually a screen lock - others are "suspend", "go
home", "power off", "close app" (by default - this is configurable, but no gui
to do it at the moment).

so this can be bound to a key by default (a button) and it is - the power
button. so fullscreen apps even while up can be closed with pressing power,
then the close button, or you can "go home" to launch other apps - and when
back home - you have the top-bar. so this should cover everything... except one
thing i've missed: no "give me a qwerty keyboard button". i'll add that so
fullscreen apps can have a "qwerty" button to show/hide the vkbd forcibly. :)

all you need - is for X to produce keystrokes for aux and power buttons. :)
