This maybe a add-on to enhancement #526 - Move panes around
Being able to on a tab or window set a master pane/area (which usually will occupy half of the screen, when running in fullscreen mode), and with a shortcut switch which pane is to be displayed in this area.
It could also be described as move panes around, but resize the panes to match the size of the pane in that position before the move. E.g if pane a is moved to the position of pane b, pane a inherits the size of pane b.
This gives one the ability to have one large pane (your main working pane) and several smaller panes which can easily be moved and then taking the postion as the main working pane.
