Ok. Yes, this is interesting.

Is it possible to have all this code in your own Config.hs? Being able
to write rotView et al in Config.hs will give us an indication of how
easy it is to just let people hack their own Config.hs (and other
3rd party modules), for extensions, without needing to patch the core.

Basically I see Operations.hs as a default set of wm operations, but I
can imagine people writing their own modules for other functionality,
which people can import into their Config.hs.
