Reflect allows you to reflect any given layout horizontally
or vertically. Adding “import XMonad.Layout.Reflect” to your
config and “reflectVert(tabbed shrinkText defaultTConf)” to
your layouts will do it. reflectHoriz with tabbed is fun,
too—Arabic window manager, anyone?

(Also, Andrea had something like this; see
http://www.haskell.org/pipermail/xmonad/2008-February/004767.html .
I don’t know how to use it, though.)

Does DwmPromote do what you want? See

Browsing the XMonadContrib documentation at
http://www.xmonad.org/xmonad-docs/xmonad-contrib/ is really
worth it. It’s almost a FAQ in itself.
