[Xmonad] Add FloatLayout, a Layout Transformer adding a floating layer

this is to try out moving the floating to the level of layouts.
This would make it possible to have different layout algorithms for the
floating layer, including different decorations for windows there.

At the moment it's possible to move windows with the mouse and keys.
Additionally there is a hidden layer so windows can be hidden
temporarily (this being the initial reason to investigate it: hide all
floating windows for a moment)

TODO: - it's difficult to automagically move a window to the floating
        layer with a manageHook 
      - moving windows between workspaces will *not* preserve the
        floating status

What do you think?
