Automatic window maximization in Gnome

After using Windows 7 for some time, I've noticed that it has a really nice feature that allows to automatically maximize a window by dragging it to the top edge of the screen and restore a window from a maximized state by dragging its titlebar. I've implemented the same feature for metacity, the Gnome's window manager, and I find it very convenient. Lets hope it will be accepted upstream. Issue 578409 in bugzilla.

P.S. It's been a while since I blogged last time here and I made only a few blog posts in the corporate blog, well I have to say I am a terrible blogger, will see how it goes on.
