Hi Carsten,

There might be some easy things to fix to get xmonad & contrib to
build with older ghcs. For example, things like "import
Control.Exception" can easily be changed to "import
Contol.Exception.Extensible", if that's the only change necessary to
maintain compatibility with something as old as ghc-6.12.

I've listed some highlights for the release I'll hopefully get out
today: http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Xmonad/Notable_changes_since_0.10

Other things to remember for the release are listed in:
