please find attached the following patch.
I have a question in case it gets applied. I'd like to improve the
mode to search for files (locate isn't fast/good enough). So far I
thought of tracker  and recollq  but as noted none seemed 100%
right. I thought of loading the db written by 'updatedb' in the memory
 but I don't know if that's acceptable as xmonad tries to stay
 it would be fast, but it needs to add dbus as a dependency
 the query language doesn't apply to file *names* only (it works to
search for terms *in* files) http://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/
 my mlocate.db is 37M for a 1.5TB disk

* Adds Setting `alwaysHighlight` to defaultXPConfig. When set to
true, autocompletion always highlight the first result if it is not
Adds module XMonad.Actions.Launcher. This module allows to combine
and switch between instances of XPrompt. It includes a default set of
modes which require the programs `hoogle`, `locate` and `calc` to be
installed to work properly.
