The function was in a stand-alone module named RunInXTerm before the 
runXXX functions were collected into Run.  So the situation for the 
function itself is unchanged.  Probably the dependencies of the other 
runXXX-functions cause some cyclical imports, but Run.hs just imports 
XMonad from the core and nothing from the contrib, so I don't see where 
a problem might arise, unless XMonad.hs imports some contrib modules, 
which is not the case.

Conceptually I find it odd that I now need to import the whole 
ShellPrompt facility just to get a command that has nothing to do with
