[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Creating Home Applet

OK so it seems that someone else asked this question before and didn't 
get a reply - is there no way to remotely put an application in 
fullscreen mode? It can be done with code executed by the application, 
but i suppose there is no dbus message that can activate it? Is it 
possible to fake the F6 key and send that to the application, therefore 
faking the hardware keypress? I only want to start the application in 
fullscreen mode and after that leave control to the user.
