Let's say I have a window with two panes (size irrelevant, 'A' = active)

+-----+-----+
|     |  A  |
|     |     |
|     |     |
|     |     |
+-----+-----+

If I were to split-window I would get:

+-----+-----+
|     |  A  |
|     |     |
|     +-----+
|     |     |
+-----+-----+

Which is normally fine. But can I tell it to split the parent window instead of the current pane? Eg:

+-----+-----+
|     |  A  |
|     |     |
+-----+-----+
|           |
+-----------+
