[xmonad] view workspace key shortcuts

This is probably a stupid question, and I expect you xmonad hackers will
know the answer in an instant.
I have workspaces which are called by a mix of names and numbers, like
myWorkspaces = ["www", "2", "3", "mail", "gimp"] ++ map show [6..9]
Now, I know we already have default keymappings which allow you to
quickly view (or send windows to) workspaces by their number.
So, yes, I can already type Mod-1 and get to the "www" workspace, Mod-4
and get to the "mail" workspace.
And, yes, I already have the Xmonad.Actions.Commands plugin installed,
which I have set up to give a menu of workspaces when one hits the right
However, what I would like to do is have a simple key-combo which will
get me *directly* to a given workspace, such as Mod4-m to take me to the
"mail" workspace, and so on; I want to be able to have meaningful
shortcuts, not just numbers.
But I haven't been able to figure out what the correct command is to
bind to the keymap. I've made guesses, but they're all illegal Haskell;
no surprise, because I don't know Haskell. (Some day, but not now).
I mean, I know I need to add someCommand to my key-list, but what?
