How would combineThree ThreeColumns l1 l2 l3 differ from

l1 *|** (l2 *|* l3) ?

I guess one answer is that it may differ in how it sizes things when there
are only two windows.

Support for something like combineN is going to wait until there's support
for hierarchical stacks in xmonad (which may never happen).  combineTwo is
a horrible hack as it is, and it's far more elegant than combineThree
would be, if it's forced to use the same approach (which duplicates the
information that xmonad stores about the windows present in the workspace
and tries to reconstruct what changes were made each time doLayout is
