An alternative approach could be a standard Config.hs that reads
parameters from $HOME/.xmonad.cfg. This file would be some sort of 0-th
order config language (xml?) supporting common configuration options.

  * experts could continue to maintain a custom Config.hs, and recompile
as required
  * novices could edit .xmonad.cfg directly or via a GUI tool, without
needing to recompile.
