That's exactly what I needed, wonderful. After a couple of minutes I got it.

For example:

myManageHook = composeAll
	[ [...snip...]
	, resource =? "alsamixer" --> doRectFloat alsamixerRect
		alsamixerRect = W.RationalRect 0.8 0.0 0.2 0.3

Perfect for my needs. I have some more questions but I will look around a bit
more before spamming the lists. Thanks for all the assistance.
