We'll probably make a preference for selecting what is hidden 
when editor area is maximized -- this seems to address what 
people are asking for without requiring the overhead of learning 

Having each area be toggleable by command is also good.  There 
are already commands like hide-horizontal-tools that could be 
used in a script but some like show/hide toolbar are missing.

I'm leaning towards a pref also for F1 and F2 rather than making 
them three state -- keep in mind that a three-state model would 
require two presses to get from minimized to shown (via hidden).
I suspect that would get annoying.  But is this even needed if
Maximize Editor Area has a pref to specify what is hidden?
