Actually I was wrong. It does not work as well with xmonad. Sorry about

Some of these settings seem to be activated in the gnomeconfig of
xmonad (without extra configuration). For instance,
 - window selection follows the mouse,
 - the movement key is set to mod.
I actually thought this was inherited from gnome settings but apparently
In bluetile, the window selection can be configured
(focus_follows_mouse: true) but the movement key cannot as far as I can
tell (probably because there is no mouse bindings so far).

So maybe this report should be classified as an enhancement request for
mouse bindings...
