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?
