[New-bugs-announce] [issue6124] Tkinter should support the OS X zoom button

New submission from Marc Culler <culler at math.uic.edu>:

As far as I can tell, no Tkinter event or pseudo event is generated by
clicking the green "zoom" button on Mac OS X windows.  This makes it
impossible to support that OS X paradigm in a Tkinter application.

I would like to be able to bind "<<Zoom>>" to a command that resizes the
window according to the OS X UI guidelines.  By the way, the guidelines
specify that the interpretation of "zoom" depends on the application,
and the effect need not be the same as "maximize".
