Actually, the KDE pager is able to select xmonad workspaces for me (using a
possibly somewhat out-of-date darcs version of xmc).  It does fail after
I've deleted a workspace, however.  :( Definitely could use some work.
Still, it's already a much more friendly way for my wife to change desktops
than to try to teach her obscure keyboard commands for a computer she
hardly ever uses (since she has her own non-xmonad-running laptop).
