[xmonad] Shift windows around

When the machine boots I am going to start several of the same
application. I want to ensure they each get their own workspace. That
is, no two instances of this application will ever appear on the same

This is why I think doF may be appropriate, but I am not completely sure
and struggling to improve this confidence with the types.
