I don't think it is possible to react to an X event only once with the layout
system.  We've considered an "EventHook" before -- I believe that is the best
way forward for EwmhDesktops.  Let's start work on this after xmonad 0.6 (will
be released this weekend).  For now, we can brainstorm some potential designs.

I think you'll agree that these patches aren't ready for upstream until we
tackle this issue.
