Hi, thanks Steve.  Is there any interest in adding a full screen option to cream directly ?

You can get relatively close. The gui version of Vim (gVim) can be
maximized to the size of the full screen and Cream will remember it.
I'm not sure how to hide the window title bar, supposedly something
like this:

  :set guiheadroom=-50

but my Gnome window manager doesn't accommodate it.

To hide the toolbar, tabs, statusline, and line numbers, simply use
the corresponding options in the Settings menu.

To go farther requires command line settings.

To remove the menu:

  :set guioptions-=m

To remove the right and bottom scrollbars:

  :set guioptions-=rb

After all that, you'll end up with a pretty simple window, but still
not the same thing that WhiteRoom/TermRoom provide. Basically the
left window edge is the writing margin in vim.
