The only thing I can think of is to catch the <Configure> event and try
to determine the current state of the window, like:
if event.widget.wm_state() == 'zoomed':
...update the window geometry as desired...
The "zoomed" state seems to be valid only for windows and OSX, not X11,
so I cannot test this here on my linux box.
Alternatively, as a last resort, you might try to remove the title bar
with overrideredirect and create your own title bar; the maximize button
then should toggle between wm_state('zoomed') and wm_state('normal') on
I hope this helps
