I think that the implications of this patch are too significant to apply right
before a release.
Adam Vogt made an animated gif  that demonstrates one oustanding issue.
The bullets window has xmonad focus, but another window has keyboard focus, we
need a better solution there.
We will be applying this patch (perhaps with some tweaks) immediately after
the 0.9 release. If the changes aren't too extensive, we'll make a 0.9.1
bugfix release so users don't have to wait for 1.0.
