Comment #15 on issue 230 by YitzGale: Modular config support

Here's another idea: if xmonad.hs contains just

import XMonad
main = useModularConfig

then xmonad reloads again using whichever modular
config scheme we choose. That does slow things down,
but then we can also provide a command-line flag
that skips directly to modular without worrying about
compatibility issues. We are then free to choose whichever
scheme we prefer for modular configuration.

We could also arrange things so that if xmonad.hs is
not the above, old-style config files would still work
as always even with the --modular command line
flag. That requirement would slightly limit us in our
choice of modular scheme though.
