[xmonad] IM layout configuration for Psi

I tried a few different ways using xprop as a guide, but still no
luck.   Any more tips?

from xmonad.hs:

1st attempt:
IM (1%7) (Or (ClassName "psi") (And (ClassName "Skype") (And (Role "")
(Not (Title "Options")))))

2nd attempt:
IM (1%7) (Or (Role "psimain") (And (ClassName "Skype") (And (Role "")
(Not (Title "Options")))))

3rd attempt:
IM (1%7) (Or (Title "Psi") (And (ClassName "Skype") (And (Role "")
(Not (Title "Options")))))

Note:  i was testing with only the psi buddy list window and
terminals, to be certain no other windows might have "psi" in their
props.  Figured once I was able to match the buddy list window, then I
could refine it to make sure no other psi window is matched.

the main psi window xprops:

matt at matt-desktop:~$ xprop
                window state: Normal
                icon window: 0x0
_NET_WM_NAME(UTF8_STRING) = 0x50, 0x73, 0x69
XdndAware(ATOM) = ATOM
0xb7, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0xac, 0xb7, 0x10, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0
WM_CLIENT_LEADER(WINDOW): window id # 0x2e0044e
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "main", "psi"
                Client accepts input or input focus: True
                Initial state is Normal State.
                bitmap id # to use for icon: 0x2e00144
                bitmap id # of mask for icon: 0x2e00145
                window id # of group leader: 0x2e0044e
                user specified location: 819, 283
                program specified location: 819, 283
                user specified size: 203 by 996
                program specified size: 203 by 996
                program specified minimum size: 100 by 90
                window gravity: NorthWest
