I am not very familiar with haskell so even simple edits to the config file                    
can be confusing. Maybe a simpler format with the ability to embed                             
haskell code where needed would be easier.

Everything else :)

I already mentioned it above, but I think the config could be more user

It would be great to able to arbitrarily resize any window, not just the                       
master area. The whole Master area thing seems pretty integral to xmonad,                      
though, so I don't really expect this to happen.

I miss the ability to have multiple tabs in any window. I understand this is                   
possible with Layout.Combo, but I haven't had time to try to set it up.                        
Basically, I would like to be able to easily create a window layout like this:

Unfriendly developers!                                                                         
I am not really able to keep up with the mailing list as much as I would                       
like, so it is very well possible much of what I mentioned is already                          
possible. If that is the case, then you all rock even more than I thought.
