Detect Full-Screen Mode

By the way, I originally asked how full-screen mode might be detected at the AppleScript Users list and AppleScript uber-guru Bill Cheeseman posted this example using Safari, but it should work with any other app in Lion (I use it with iTunes, for example):

tell application "System Events"
	tell process "Safari" -- or whatever
		get value of attribute "AXFullScreen" of window 1
	end tell
end tell
display dialog result as text

One more thing: Stick a try block around it so Snow Leopard users don't get a jolt.
