I haven't used this for a while, and there might be more bulletproof
ways to do this, but I used to run xmonad inside xmonad (with
different modkeys) using this shell script (or rather, something like
it - I've thrown out some vestigal stuff).
Caveat: I haven't tested this before sending - but it ought to be
reasonable, I think.
Xnest :1 -name "Xnest" +kb -ac -bw 5 -geometry 1260x780 &
xsetroot -display :1 -solid gray
Hope this helps!
