Perhaps another way of looking at it is it hardcodes knowledge of one
particular coordinate system transformer. What if somebody decided to
write XMonad.Layout.Logarithmic (say, to give size preference to one
corner of the screen)? What if I did that just to spite you? :D

There is no perfect answer, of course, because we allow contribs to talk
to X directly, so we can't wrap every call.
