In general, I think most NCL resources can be used with the wrf_xxxx
functions, *except* for the "gsn" ones, because these are particular to
the gsn_xxxx plotting functions.

The wrf_xxxx plotting functions are meant to produce canned plots that
are sized for you (based on titles and such), so using gsnMaximize
won't make much sense here. So you're right, I don't think it can
have any effect.

We might be able to do a better job about documenting the wrf_xxxx
functions on the NCL side of things. I'll CC wrfhelp so they have a
heads up.
