Thus, if one attempted to use a prompt configuration different than defaultXPConfig, and one defined it in one's Config.hs where it should be, then the borderWidth field would cause a warning by -Wall, since borderWidth is already a name being used by XMonad at large.

Hi Gwern,

the title of this message is definitely correct. But I'm not sure
about the new field name: as far as my English goes, not that far
actually, Pixel, in the Xlib library, refers to colors and depth, not
to dimensions (think about blackPixel). While I think that with need a
better name, can you confirm me that this is the right one?

Thanks for
