Ignore the overlapping in that shot, but notice that there are three
panes, each with a bunch of tabs. I think this can kind-of be achieved
in XMonad using Combo or LayoutScreens, but these are very inflexible in
comparison as they require a recompile to change the number of panes.

I agree this would be a nice feature to have, and I believe there's
no reason in principle why one couldn't write a general nesting layout
combinator. David said a few days ago that the main trouble is XMonad's
linear representation of the window stack.

Maybe this could be changed for 0.6? :-)
