Just to be clear: one of the main advantages of this inversion (once we've
eliminated recursive imports and thus are able to create an xmonad package)
is that it'll allow working demo configs to be included in XMonadContrib,
so that, for instance, Joachim's hook work could be done quite easily.

And these demo configs could be compiled as the beginnings of a test suite
for XMonadContrib, which would be a Very Good Thing.  We could finally have
automatic checking for the documentation of XMonadContrib, which would be a
major bonus.
