[Xmonad] Ideas on configuring workspaces?

Firstly, thanks for the tips on getting XM working on FreeBSD.  I got it 
working after upgrading to FreeBSD 6.2 (required to build GHC 6.6) and 
getting Cabal from darcs.  Finally a window manager a non-X-guru can 
(mostly) understand.

I have been looking at having XM configure my workspaces, rather than 
doing it manually after prelaunching apps in .xinitrc or launching them 
from the keyboard.  However, I don't have a clue how to correlate the 
app's windowID, when they decide to map themselves, with any data 
structures I might build in Config.hs.  Does anyone have any clues about 
what info is available through X that might help?
