regardless the recommendation - dzen is very useful for many users
too, I think I'll implement you suggestions. I hope I'll be able to
make a 0.9 release together with the 0.7 xmonad release.


ps: I do not intent to sound demanding, but I really need your
help/suggestion/directions for the issue #111 stuff. Please let me
know, when you find the time.
