New issue 469 by kris... at emptybox.org: The --replace flag does not work

What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. xmonad --replace

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect xmonad to replace the running window manager as documented in
xmonad --help
Usage: xmonad [OPTION]
   --help                       Print this message
   --version                    Print the version number
   --recompile                  Recompile your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs
   --replace                    Replace the running window manager with  
   --restart                    Request a running xmonad process to restart

Instead the following occurs:
xmonad --replace
xmonad: user error (unrecognized flags)

xmonad --version
xmonad 0.10
(the latest version from darcs)
