I don't think so. The documentation for XMonad.Layout.Gaps says you'll
be able to do it with XMonad.Layout.PerScreen, but that module doesn't
exist. It does look like this problem has been [solved in xmobar], if
you feel like switching panels.

Poking around a bit more, this oesn't look like it would be too hard to
fix in dzen.
