[xmonad] Using TwoPane

This is a question that might have been answered already, but I can't
seem to find an answer for it.
I often have more than two windows on a screen, and on occasion I want
to pick two of these and put them next to each other, for this reason
I have TwoPane in the my layout sequence. However I often find it
cumbersome to work with, because the displayed windows keep on
changing when I switch focus between windows. Here's a simple example
of what I mean, with the following layout:
myLayout = tall12 ||| twoPane
tall12 = Tall tall12_nmaster tall12_delta tall12_ratio
tall12_nmaster = 1 -- num of windows in the master pane
tall12_ratio = 1/2 -- proportion of screen occupied by master pane
tall12_delta = 3/100 -- percent of screen to increment by
twoPane = TwoPane twoPane_delta twoPane_ratio
twoPane_ratio = 1/2 -- proportion of screen occupied by master pane
twoPane_delta = 3/100 -- percent of screen to increment by when resizing
I start three terminals, t1, t2 and t3, I then switch to TwoPane and
have a screen showing t1 and t2 (t1|t2). What I want is to have t1
next to t3, so I jump through the windows until I have t1|t3.
However, if I now want to switch focus to t1 I can't seem do that
without changing what windows are visible, however I do it I end up
with t1|t2. What I have to do is get t3 over to the master area, then
jump through until I have t3|t1. I have to redo the same steps if I
after that want to switch focus to t3.
Is there a way around this (except the obvious one which would be to
move t2 to another workspace)?
