Well, for me the ability to customize the tile layout is pretty high in
priority, as are tabs.  Of course, you may say it's my fault for
considering switching to a window manager modelled after one that I
dislike, but there it is.

After that, I'd be interested in a decent input prompt (which dmenu is
not).  Ion's is better, but I'd rather figure out how to make use of an
actual bash shell, as the tab completion of ion's query box is annoying
(but better than nothing).

I guess with those changes (which I understand are pretty huge), xmonad
would have pretty much caught up with ion3 in functionality that I care
about.  Oh, and the ability to customize treatment of windows.  I don't
want xclock to ever get the focus, for instance, and would prefer if I
could stick the stupid korgac control panel application somewhere where
it'll never be seen, and at a minimum to avoid giving it focus.
