You can use the DynamicLog contrib module and then set a loogHook
in Config.hs. This prints the string you are interested in to
xmonad's stdout which you can pipe to a dzen instance.

I wrote such an extension for my own use, but I didn't get around to
cleaning it up yet.

I use it like this in my config:
    , ((modMask, xK_a), submap . M.fromList $
        [((0, k), swap i)
          | (i,k) <- zip [0 .. fromIntegral workspaces - 1] [xK_1 ..]])

Here's the the patch anyways ...
