Sure, but why isn't it happening? :)
What's keeping everyone from releasing the long debated (there were some
mails a few weeks ago..) 1.0 version? I mean it can't be too hard to tag
1.0 in darcs and build a tarball.
I'd do it myself if
a) I'd be a bit more involved in xmonad development and
b) this wouldn't feel like just pushing my name to the front now.

Too bad that there's a policy. Although I personally don't like
versioning using major and minor numbers, I understand that it's
necessary for something like the haskell platform.
Thanks for pointing me to it.
