Not strictly necessary.  You (?) proposed earlier inverting xmonad, such
that Config.hs would contain main and depend on everything else.  I note
that if this were done, it would be possible to compile "Config.hs"
`delete` xmonad as a Cabal library, and then running a standalone config
file would be as easy as runghc.
