Well, expand and maximize are not the same, maximize increases the
windows size to screen-width . screen-height (- x . y of dock windows &
co), expand increases the size of the window until it hits other
windows, therefore replacing maximize with expand everywhere is wrong in
my eyes, but: maximize-fill-window suggests it would be a maximisation
action, but in truth it "just" expands the window.
