If adopted, the docstring parser patch I posted to the list earlier
today would handles this for you; you'd simply add comments to your
source for each external dependency:

-- %cabalbuilddep foo>=1.0
-- %cabalbuilddep bar>=2.0

These dependencies would get picked up by the parser (which ideally is
launched by a darcs post-commit hook in the contrib repo) and shoved
into xmonad.cabal.
