This is a setup that I've actually been looking for, but haven't found a
way to produce from the existing layouts.

This sort of works for me:
combineTwo (TwoPane 0.03 0.5) Grid Grid
Unfortunately, all windows after the second one open in the left pane
(like a mirrored Tall). It says in the docs
that you'll need special shortcuts to move windows between the two
columns. I've tried to implement them like this:
, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_l ), sendMessage $ Move R)
, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_j ), sendMessage $ Move D)
, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_h ), sendMessage $ Move L)
, ((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_k ), sendMessage $ Move U)
It seems to have no effect though. If you can find a way to get that
working, you should be able to sort of get what you want. But from what
the docs say, to get exactly what you want will require making changes
in xmonad's core.
