i' just pushed some patches to my repository here:

among the one that adds a simple floating layout, based on the new
stuff I've been coding lately. See the gimp in action:


there's no mouse interface so far, but you can move and resize windows
with the keyboard (which actually fulfills my needs...;).

To test it, just try my default configuration (you need xmobar I

import XMonad
import XMonad.Config.Arossato (arossatoConfig)
main = xmonad =<< arossatoConfig

I'd like to add the fact that the real part of the SimpleFloat layout
is made up of 15 lines of code. Many of them could be removed by a
real coder...;)

Hope you'll enjoy.
