Do you want the maximised window to overwrite the bottom panel? The bottom
panel is always visible, and no window covers it. That is what "maximise"
normally means. That was one reason why I went to only one panel.
An easier option has been mentioned: set the bottom panel to auto-hide. Then
it is usually out of sight, and your window can use that space. You can bring
the panel back when you need it.
