[OpenLayers-Dev] Rearranging stack order of layers

I have an OpenLayers application which initially has 4 layers, called
(a),(b),(c) & (d). The app then allows the creation of a new layer (e)
which I want it to "swap" places with layer (b) so that the order should be

I use the map.setLayerIndex and layer.getZIndex to try and do this but I
realise that the layers are in a FIFO like queue, so when I temporarily
re-assign layer (b) the other layers automatically reorder themselves to
(a),(c),(d),(e) ...or at least that's what I think it happening.

Could anyone show me how I can simply swap the z-order of 2 layers?
