The dock application seems to be self-contained, i.e. has no dependency
on xmonad code. It probably is useful on its own, e.g. for people doing
their own configuration, right? But I guess it is not useful for
non-xmonad-users, right?

Is bluetilemockwin useful for anyone but developers creating

For Debian, I’d say I create bluetile-utils package from the bluetile
hackage package, containing bluetiledock and bluetilegreet, and build
the bluetile package from the xmonad-contrib source, which then depends
on bluetile-utils. This way, I would not have to recompile bluetiledock
or bluetilegreet just because a part of the xmonad code gets upgraded.
Does this make sense?
