Thanks for that link hh... I had researched this a while back and actually
looked at the source code.  I knew about the modifier key, but didn't know
about the double click.

So, you can hold the option key down when hovering over the green dot to
get the maximize "+" action.  You can also double click the title bar to
maximize the window.  If you just click the green dot, you get the full
screen mode.

I would go one step further... this is the way the OS works now and other
apps work that way too.  Trying to make your LC app work like a previous
version of the OS may not be the best course of action.
