[xmonad] xmonad-contrib patch

Hi all,

Just wanted to say Thanks! to everyone for XMonad.  I've got it
running with gnome for the panels but it blows the gnome WM out of
the water.

I did run across some functionality I wanted that didn't exist so I
wrote it up (attached).  On reflection I should have added a long
patch message.  I found WindowGo for runOrRaise but often I want to
pull a window (browser, mail, etc) to my current workspace instead
of going to the one it's in.  copyOrRun (and underlying copyMaybe)
do that.

-------------- next part --------------

Devin Mullins <me at twifkak.com>**20080515062211
 Aside from documentation, this is pretty much usable, now.
[X.A.WindowNavigation: have currentPosition handle axes independently
Devin Mullins <me at twifkak.com>**20080515053330

 that might not become very apparent until I fix setPosition.

[add draft XMonad.Actions.WindowNavigation
Devin Mullins <me at twifkak.com>**20080504050022
 This is an experiment with replacing the WindowNavigation LayoutModifier with
 one that simply adds keybindings and stores state in an IORef. Credit to
 droundy for the original code -- hopefully I'm not butchering it. The end
 intent is to add Xinerama support, but it'll be a little while before I get

[pull suppressWhen logic into main WithUrgencyHook handler
Devin Mullins <me at twifkak.com>**20080513075247
 In order for this to work, I added a new UrgencyHook method to communicate the
 SuppressWhen value. I'm not sure if this is actually better than just providing
 a convenience function, but it's an easy switch.

[make UrgencyHook an EventHook
Devin Mullins <me at twifkak.com>**20080512024822
 This gets rid of the stupid bug that led to a need for the clearBit hack, and
 allowed me to simplify the types (since EventHooks aren't required to
 parameterize on the window type). Config files need not change, unless they
 declare instances of UrgencyHook, in which case, they should remove "Window" as
 is seen in this patch.

 around in resonse to focus changes. Do that only in response to keyboard

 This makes EWMH behave a bit more like metacity: If _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW is

 The new getBrowser function allows us to mv the old selectSearch and promptSearch aside as too-general functions, and replace them with new versions, which employ getBrowser to supply one more argument. This allows us to replace the tedious 'selectSearch google "firefox"; selectSearch yahoo "firefox"...' with shorter 'selectSearch google' and so on. One less argument.
 Also, update the docs.
