Hi Devin,

At some point I tried something that's perhaps a bit more ambitious,
at least in terms of re-order things like layout modifiers:
but I think your TH solution to the layout issue is more likely to go
into contrib instead of perhaps going into xmonad-extras

In principle there is an objection to template haskell (and fclabels
which requires it), since there are supposedly some situations where
you can get a ghc but no ghci which I recall is required for template
haskell to run. But maybe that isn't a big deal anymore.
