My monitor arrangement includes two 27" monitors in profile orientation. The Tall layout (the default layout for XMonad) is a pretty poor choice for my monitor setup, but after looking through the layout gallery it appears that most layouts assume a landscape monitor.

Are there any good layouts for profile monitors? Maybe something like Tall but it splits horizontally first and then vertically between non-master windows?

It looks like you want to rotate the Tall layout by 90 degrees.

The minimal example how to use this is to place this layout into the layoutHook of your Xmonad configuration.

 main = do
     xmonad $ defaultConfig { layoutHook = Mirror $ Tall 1 (3/100) (0.5) }

This makes Xmonad use Tall layout with 1 master area, 3/100 increments and a ratio of 50 percent. Mirror turns this layout 90 degrees.
