> I think we discussed it when it was added, but I don't remember why we decided to go with enter/leave signals. Maybe martin remembers. The thing is that now that we have those signals and you can prevent fullscreen from happening using that API, I see no reason for duplicating the functionality or make it it more complex with policies.

The problem (that I see) is that the user can't be asked on a per-request basis because to block the loading, you have to sit in the signal handler while you ask, which blocks the GUI thread.

> Unless there is some security issue about going fullscreen that we're missing, all the work to actually go fullscreen is done by the application so the existing signals are more than enough.

Security? Probably not. I do hate it when apps try to disobey my window manager though.

If permission-request isn't going to handle the fullscreen request, I guess a variable in uzbl can do the job.
