Actually, this is not quite sufficient (good catch by Stefan).  Here is
what will work:
 - darcs pull X11-extras, clean, build, install X11-extras
 - 'runhaskell Setup clean', build, install X11-xmonad
 - restart into the newly built executable
 - view each of your workspaces at least once
 - darcs pull xmonad
 - clean, build, install xmonad
 - restart

Or you can just be safe and totally restart X the next time you upgrade.
