[PD] gui devel idea: "kiosk mode"

just had a thought for a gui development: a runtime mode, feasible for  
demos or "finished" applications where the user only gets presented with  
the finished program, and no menus. In opera it's called kiosk mode  
(http://www.opera.com/support/mastering/kiosk/): all the menus are hidden,  
and the user should only interact with the program.

It doesn't have to go as far as opera's mode (and disable key shortcuts),  
but if it's not complicated, a "presentation mode" could be nice for patch  
showcase, finished performance patches or tools, ...
As far as I imagine, some simple options might be enough:

- hide menus
- hide window lane
- hide borders
- fullscreen mode
