#' Add additional panes to leaflet map to control layer order
#'
#' @description
#' map panes can be created by supplying a name and a zIndex to control layer
#' ordering. We recommend a \code{zIndex} value between 400 (the default
#' overlay pane) and 500 (the default shadow pane). You can then use this pane
#' to render overlays (points, lines, polygons) by setting the \code{pane}
#' argument in \code{leafletOptions}. This will give you control
#' over the order of the layers, e.g. points always on top of polygons.
#' If two layers are provided to the same pane, overlay will be determined by
#' order of adding. See examples below.
#' See \url{https://leafletjs.com/reference-1.3.4.html#map-pane} for details.
#'
#' If the error "Cannot read property 'appendChild' of undefined" occurs, make
#' sure the pane being used for used for display has already been added to the map.
#'
#' @param map A \code{leaflet} or \code{mapview} object.
#' @param name The name of the new pane (refer to this in \code{leafletOptions}.
#' @param zIndex The zIndex of the pane. Panes with higher index are rendered
#' above panes with lower indices.
