I had an obligation with David about porting Mosaic (and Anneal) to
the class system. Actually I would like to do that but my time is very
limited now (too much twaching now) - but it should be getting better
in the next weeks (but I'm and will be using much of my
available/spare time for writing xmonad docs). So I would like to have
an exception and a time extension for fulfilling my obligations.

Anyhow I have write access to the repository too... ;)

Obviously, if David wants to get rid of Mosaic and Anneal that's fine
with me.

Having them in the cabal file is quite a potent reminder.
