Thanks, that's good to know I'm doing things generally right. Maybe a
more specific question would help me improve it though... what I'm
actually trying to do is make a tabular list of workspace properties
myLayoutHook = avoidStruts $ smartBorders $ format
[ ("admin", "~/dotfiles", (Full, tall, Grid, wide))
, ("notes" , "~/notes" , (tall, wide) )
tall = ...
wide = ...
format = ???
And I can't figure out what the format function should be.
