Woa, that manifested quickly. I suppose it would be hard to persuade you
to push this schedule back a week or two? So that I would have a chance
to work on the remaining Bluetile-related patches and Bluetile could
then be build from a released xmonad version?

Mostly only to big chunks remain: Bluetile's floating layout and
enhanced, multi-screen-aware decoration. 
However, to be honest, those might be changes that one doesn't want
close to a release. It will require at least Daniel's extensible state
patch in the core and maybe a tweak here and there that would probably
need to be discussed first.

So how do you feel about this? Wait for 1.0? But that will probably not
be in a long time, will it?
