as the question: 

'How can I make xmonad ignore application "foo" and have it appear on every workspace?'

is kind of a FAQ in xmonad's IRC channel, i wrote a tiny application
just for this purpose.

Source is attached below, usage is trivial:

   - retreive the window ID of the application you want to
     unmanage/manage with 'xwininfo'

   - invoke the program below, like:
       * unmanage <windowid>
	   * manage <windowid>

Compilation und usage instructions are in the code..

Have fun, Rob.
