Ubuntu – Mutter: Global menu integration

appmenumutterpanelunity-2dwindow-manager

Is it possible to have Mutter merge the title bar of maximized windows and the panel, like happens with Compiz and Metacity? I want to try to replace Metacity with Mutter in Unity 2D, and so far it looks good appart from the missing panel integration.
