Even though I’ve been using xmonad for a couple months, I’m
still not completely comfortable with greedy workspace
switching. It seems somehow wrong to me. Is it possible to
configure xmonad to revert to the old style of switching (or
what I think the old style is; I converted to xmonad after
the 0.3 release with greedy switching) where pressing Mod+#
for a visible workspace would be equivalent to Mod+[WER]? Or
possibly have a different set of workspaces for each screen,
so that Mod+7 on screen 0 would pull up a different
workspace than Mod+7 on screen 1*? Both at work and at home,
my two screens have different resolutions and
workspace-swapping is sometimes unpleasant.

* Displaying the current screen configuration in dzen or
xmobar could be difficult, though. I known’t enough about
how log hooks work in xmonad 0.5.
