People are confused when they "nix search" for xmobar (a standalone
application which just happens to be written in Haskell) and don't
find it; they assume xmobar is not actually packaged. They have to
have special Nix knowledge to know that they should look in
haskellPackages for xmobar.

Let's just put xmobar in all-packages.nix so it shows up in search,
and people can install it straightforwardly without knowing about
haskellPackages.

Motivation for this change
Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Assured whether relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

This seems sensible by the same logic that has taffybar in all-packages.
