This is exactly what I changed with the patch I pushed (+ a few other  
inconsistencies elsewhere), and exactly the change I suggested three  
days ago (along with several others). Note that the website does not  
show the documentation from darcs xmonad, but from the latest release  
of xmonad. Please "darcs pull", then rebuild the documentation locally  
on your machine to see the change.

The indentation problems suck, I agree, but there's very little we can  
do about that: we really want to typeset the Haskell code distinctly  
from the commentary, and indentation is one commonly-accepted way to  
make the distinction. All the Haskell code should be at the same  
indentation level, so that a complete copy-and-paste should work; I'm  
sorry that it didn't for you.
