so, as the title suggests, i'm think ing of switching to xmonad for my wm...
 my Q is:  how much haskell do i need to know to use it effectively?  at the
moment i am pre-alpha grasshopper status in my haskell coding skills, (i
know haskell exists and is high on my list of languages to learn) though i
don't want to have to become a haskell guru in order to be able to use
xmonad.  so really, what's the learning curve like to start using xmonad?
