[Pkg-haskell-maintainers] Bug#585674: bluetile: requires mod4 key

Package: bluetile
Version: 0.4.1-1

Unfortunately, bluetile does not seem to be very usable on this laptop.
This is for two reasons:

1. There is no GNOME panel for some reason.  So the only ways to
launch a program are:

 - mod+enter to launch a terminal;
 - mod+p or mod+shift+p for gmrun or dmenu; or
 - run "DISPLAY=:0 foo" from a separate shell.

2. The default modifier key is mod4 (“Win+”) and there does not seem
to be any way to change it.  This laptop does not have a Windows key.

Would it be possible to add an option for switching modifier keys to
the dock?

Aside from that, bluetile seems like just the sort of thing I would
like to use and hack on (I have been using the default xmonad
configuration so far).  Thanks for packaging it.
