You can take the definition of focusLast' from that module (it's not
exported, so you can't import it from H.InsertPositition without
changing the export list of that module, and then recompiling)
and pass it to the function XMonad.StackSet.modify':

I suppose that the easiest path for adding such functions to StackSet
is to collect them somewhere in contrib first (to demonstrate that they
actually are common functions).
