[xmonad] Stump like behavior...

I have now tried the Roledex layout, this is nearly exactly what I want
except that I want each window to be fullscreen rather than stacked the way
it does... I am going to get the source code for this and modify it so that
each window is the same size as the screen... it will be a good way into
both Haskell and xmonad. 

Thanks for the pointers,
If I get the result I
want I will publish it / give it back / etc

just bought 'Real World Haskell' and determined to 'get into it' ASAP!!

I've read around the list but I can't see what I am after,
prepared to write it myself if I have too... in stump you can create a new
application in the same frame as the current one and then rotate between
them; a circular queue of windows with the topmost one being the active

Can xmonad do this out of the box or with some nifty configuration
applied to xmonad.hs ? 

When I have a main window with firefox running and
three smaller ones stacked beloe with pork, mutt and a shell open, I would
like to be able to use the same space for emacs and swap between firefox
and emacs as I work. It's not a problem really but I wondered if it would
be easy to achieve the same stump-like operation?
