This is not as easy as it seems. If you have Emacs spanning several monitors 
and one of them changes it is not obvious what to do. One could special case it 
for the single monitor case I guess.

As this is the work of the window manager in X11, the NS-port had no code to go 
by. How is this handeled in W32 which doesn't have a window manager either?

The 10.7 style fullscreen does not have this problem, which is an argument for 
just supporting that type of fullscreen in 24.2.
