[Xmonad] dynamic workspaces, session restore

There are a couple ideas I would like to discuss.
1) Fixed number of workspaces is too inflexible and somewhat ugly, IMO.
What about creating workspaces by demand, instead? The same way
`ion' does to workspaces or screen to its "windows".
2) When xmonad quits, it forgets layout settings -- number of windows
in master pane, current tiling algorithm, focused window,
master/subordinate ratio, etc. Doesn't it?
We could save this information to `~/.xmonad' file and read it at
And a question.
3) Can I define a key binding like, say, `Win-k 1'?
The pattern is `<modifiers>-<key1> <key2>'. I find such
screen/ion/emacs-y keystrokes very handy. :)
Thank you. And happy hacking!
