as I said, it's just a proof of concept. There is no error handling
and no way to interrupt an infinite loop. Do not use in your working
XMonad session.

Moreover, sending the result of an evaluation back as a completion
made me discover a bug in XPrompt, for which I've sent a patch: if in
the completions list there is a string that is longer than the screen
a division by zero will occur, crashing xmonad.
