Since Lion is now a few months old, and Lightroom is coming out with a brand new version, it would be great to have Lightroom support full-screen apps in Lion. The Lightroom full-screen feature currently isn't able to take advantage of quickly switching between full-screen apps, which is a HUGE negative. Right now it's the only feature of Aperture that would force me to go back.

Just curious but why is this so bad relative to just using LR's own full screen feature (F Key) which you can, of course, move to it's own 'Space'? Doesn't that essentially behave identically to an app that supports Lion's full scree feature?

First, creating and deleting spaces is a pain. The bigger issue though is that you can no longer dedicate an app to a specific space. So you will accidentally end up with other windows invading your full-screen space. And finally, when you go into full-screen mode with the F key, and switch back to a non-full screen app space the toolbar is gone!

If you put it in Fullscreen, switch spaces and then switch back it is no longer in fullscreen.
