But xmonad is also under rapid development, and has a long way to go (in my
opinion--keep in mind I'm not a core developer).  I'm sure once xmonad 1.0
is out, the config format will remain stable (apart from a hypothetical
development branch), but for the forseeable future, I can certainly forsee
changes to Config.hs, as we improve it--which is really a good thing for
Haskell newbies!
