No, it's an xmonad option.  Look at how xmonad preserves layout state  
across restarts (mod-q).  Session managers expect X11 clients to  
register command lines with them specifying how to restart them with  
their current state; xmonad already implements this, it should be  
easy for xmonad to register a WM_COMMAND property for the use of any  
session manager that is running (handling WM_SAVE_YOURSELF may be a  
little trickier).
