this is right next to integration of xrandr on my wishlist

I'm somewhat familiar with the source.  Like you, I don't have
much time presently though. :-(

Here's more from my wishlist:

     * EWMH support to make ion3 integrate more completely in
       desktop environments such as gnome. I wrote a tiny module
       that updates the pager, but it's not sufficient to allow the
       pager to control ion3:

         http://n01se.net/paste/hYW -- ewmh_pager.lua

     * Migrate more core functionality to lua to minimize the
       portion written in C. For example I re-implemented
       maximization in lua because the version in C was too
       limited and wasn't extensible. (This is for floating
       workspaces.) The same module provides sawfish-like window
       pushing and maximize-fill.
