The trouble is that I have very little time for xmonad stuff.  And I
generally find that code itself is the best way of expressing an idea as to
how to do something.

My main objection is not that it took you a while to review the code, but
that you applied changes to modules in XMonadContrib for which I am
nominally the maintainer without even giving me a chance to comment on said
changes, and this after I'd already sent in a fix for the very same
issues.  It makes sense to apply bugfixes quickly, but not when there's a
fix for the very same code by its maintainer waiting for review.
