It's re-exported by XMonad, if you check here:

So whenever you have an import of XMonad.Operations, you can put an
import of XMonad, if you don't mind bringing very many more names into

ghc-6.12.1 here doesn't say so.

as such on darcswatch.

Agreed: I'd like to see things consistent, though it's a rather low
priority for me.
