Here's a little graph of xmonad users on debian, since Joachim's 
package a couple of weeks ago:


which just goes to show how important it is to get packages of your code
into the main distros.

The good news is that in the darcs branch xmonad can now be built
and distributed as a binary, and uses ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs for
configuration -- so the package maintainers job is a *lot* easier.

So, if you're involved in packaging for your distro, have a look at the 
darcs branch, and start thinking how to roll a binary package
for xmonad! :)
