xmonad only looks in ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs, though an option could be added, 
the symlink or hardlink option works fine:

I generate the links (for everything in the directory) with the following 
script, run in the source (backup) directory:

> #!/bin/sh
> pwd=`pwd`
> for x in *; do
>      ln -vs "$pwd/$x" ~/".$x"
> done
