New issue 524 by vogt.a... at gmail.com: fine-grained restoring of layout state

If the 'a' stays the same but the user changes the layout 'b', such that it  
cannot be read for layouts:

   onWorkspace "1" a b

   a ||| b

Currently the whole layout will be reset to whatever the default is. It is  
possible to use the 'a'. For example using template haskell:  

Perhaps there's a way to do it without issues such as:

  - complicated code
  - template haskell
  - breaking all code that has `import XMonad'
