xmonad passes the current state of the layout plus any ExtensibleState
(which is hidden in the layout so it will be persistent and relayed)
between instances, and may possibly require additional memory when
serializing or deserializing the layout data.  This is one of several
possible failure modes with extremely complex layouts, a large number of
workspaces, etc.
