As it stands, these three patches address sjanssen's concerns about 
symlinks and hierarchical modules, since ghc seems to give the mtime from 
the file pointed to.

This last one is important, because otherwise the .o and .hi files force a 
recompile unnecessarily when starting xmonad (unpleasantly slow!), since 
they are often created at the same time as the xmonad-$arch-$os

I don't mind this set is left out, since rebinding M-q to cabal install 
works quite the same when hacking on xmonad contrib.

Yeah, this one should never hide errors, since xmonad --recompile calls 
xmessage by itself.
