Yes. My Config.hs contains this (in the definition of keys):

    ((modMask .|. controlMask, xK_Left),
        withWindowSet $ view . pred . W.tag . W.workspace . W.current),
    ((modMask .|. controlMask, xK_Right),
        withWindowSet $ view . succ . W.tag . W.workspace . W.current)

(Replace controlMask by shiftMask.)

I don't have a real solution for this. I use XMonadContrib.SwitchTrans
with mod+f bound to toggle fullscreen mode, which works good enough in
