[xmonad] Patch: improved support for replacing an existing window manager

For reference, I've added to contrib the module XMonad.Util.Replace,
which seems to work as well as these core patches, other than the lack
of command line flag support (the xmonad binary does not pass flags
other than --resume to the ~/.xmonad/xmonad-$arch-$os).

Any suggestions for addressing that problem (or the alternative of
running `~/.xmonad/xmonad-$arch-$os --replace' instead of
/usr/bin/xmonad)

        * Add U.Replace which implements a --replace behavior.
