Out of the patches pending for core, I think these ones are seriously worth

  20090516104753: Fix for Tall documentation by Khudyakov Alexey <alexey.skladnoy at gmail.com>
  20090727032024: correct a comment by Daniel Wagner <daniel at wagner-home.com>
  20090727041612: don't emit an error on brand new installs (i.e. when neither xmonad.hs nor xmonad-$arch-$os exist) by Daniel Wagner <daniel at wagner-home.com>
  20090920020829: Catch managehook errors like `doF (const undefined)' by Adam Vogt <vogt.adam at gmail.com>

If we don't apply the patch described in [1] then it is very important
to describe the addition of the ewmhDesktopsStartup for users upgrading
from darcs.
