Currently, xmonad does not build against the packages in the latest
Stackage LTS release, in particular utf8-string-1. It would be great if
xmonad would join stackage so that such problems are detected early. It
also gives you some QA for free: http://www.stackage.org/authors

I just tried bumping the upper bound on the utf8-string dependency to ">=
0.3 && < 1.1" in xmonad.cabal and it appears to build fine against Stackage
LTS 2.7. So I believe this is a one-line fix. A grep of the xmonad source
reveals no use of the deprecated imports that were removed in the bump from
0.3.x to 1.0, and the same holds for XMonadContrib. I'll submit a patch.
The pull request has been rejected because my patch to increase the bound
on utf8-string hasn't made it to a released Hackage version yet. Is there a
release planned yet? Does this merit a full point release on its own?
