You'd rebind the call to 'view' in Config.hs, to be greedyView, I think.

Something like:

    [((m .|. modMask, k), f i)
        | (i, k) <- zip [0 .. fromIntegral workspaces - 1] [xK_1 ..]
        , (f, m) <- [(view, 0), (shift, shiftMask)]]

would be replaced with greedyView, so that mod-1..n calls that instead.

If that's indeed the fix, can you submit a documentation patch to
GreedyView.hs, illustrating how to call it?
