great. When the screen gets bigger does xmobar resize correctly too?

And what about this?

data XPosition = Top Width | Bottom Width | Static {xpos, ypos, width, height :: Int} deriving ( Read, Eq )

data Width = All | Left Int | Right Int | Center Int deriving ( Read, Eq )

so we would have:

position = Top All
for top with maximum width, or

position = Top Left 70
for top, left aligned, 70% of the screen width, or 

Bottom Center 50
and so on?

Thank you for your kind words.
