The shared workspace pool is the thing I love most about xmonad! I was
thinking of writing my own window manager to get just that feature when
xmonad was released (and I was already a haskeller). It annoys me to no end
how nearly every "virtual desktop" implementation treats multiple monitors
as one desktop.

Does your module segregate the workspaces into monitor-specific sets, that
can still be switched independently?
