You can copy-paste its source into your config, minding that the {-#
LANGUAGE Pragmas #-} go on top, that you xmonad.hs module name is Main
(though you can leave that out), and that imports must come before any

If you succeeded in merging the two together, you can add the layout
modifier just like the directions tell you too.

But perhaps it would just be easier to upgrade core and contrib from
darcs. I put the instructions and some relevant links together here:
