I'm wondering whether you read the right code:

    description (PerWorkspace _ True  l1 _) = description l1
    description (PerWorkspace _ _     _ l2) = description l2

there's not such a thing like a generic "PerWorkspavce" description in
my code.

Moreover, as I said, I did not port ModifiedLayout and David's
combinators. Maybe this is the reason why it is not working for you.
But I'm waiting a sample config for that.
