yup, i'll add that i too have xmonad on multiple screens at different sizes
and resolutions and it works a charm.
15" 1280x1024, 19" 1600x1200, 15" 1024x768.
sure if i switched a screen full of carefully sized windows/tiles containing
statically layed-out/sized applications from one monitor to the other, the
xmonad tiles will resize to proportions of that new monitor and resolution,
but this rarely proves problematic in workflow terms.  there's nearly always
many swift ways to reposition windows optimally, with xmonad.
