As far as I know there's nothing already written to, for example, modify
a layout to do that.

However, with the following you might not feel the need for it any more:

Use the swapUp/Down instead of focusUp/Down actions. In mouse bindings
setting mod-button4 and mod-button5 to  \_ -> windows W.swapUp and
\_ -> windows W.swapDown could be useful too. (W is XMonad.StackSet)
