I have no problems building the xmonad versions on hackage with
ghc-6.12. While addressing all the new warnings that come with 6.12 is
independent of packaging, those issues should be addressed sometime soon

But it would be nice to get a new release out. Before then, it might be
a good idea to review all the pending patches out there. Darcswatch can
be quite helpful in that respect.
