I think we should leverage the existing layout/message system as much
as possible here.  Proposed modifications:
 - instance Message XEvent
 - dispatch unhandled XEvents to layouts
 - add another message type: data ViewMsg = View | Hide -- send this
message to layouts on workspace change
 - put modifyLayout in the X monad

This should give us enough flexibility to do decorations inside layouts
without polluting the core with decoration handling.
