I don't quite understand this claim... the most recent release was 0.10.0,
and before that 0.9.2 which was close to a year older, and before that
0.9.1 which was close to *two years* earlier.

I will also note that xmonad cannot normally affect the communications
channel between the nc client and server, which presumably is a root window
property as is done by most X11-based programs.  It can *read* the
property, it could even remove it itself if someone wrote the code to do
so, but even then there would be a race condition between it and the server
and the server would often win the race.
