[xmonad] "Park" windows in a named group automatically

Hi all,

I really love what XMonad is doing for my productivity. There is, however,
one particular scenario in which I feel I'm doing to much by hand.

Say I've got my development env. set up and I'm working on project A. On
screen 1 I've got my browser, on 2 one or two shells and on 3 my editor.

Now, a client calls with an urgent question, or my coworker asks if I can
help her out. Now I need to set up screens 1, 2 & 3 with a browser with
different content, one or two shells on different servers/directories and
an editor with different open files.

It would be great if I could have some command / keybinding / whatever that
quickly parks the contents of certain screens to a named location, i.e.

"Park my current state to 'Project A'"
set up new stuff to deal with the interruption
park the new stuff in "Helping coworker"
go back to "Project A"

I'd love to hear a solution for this, even if it's not exactly along the
lines of what I just described.
