If you are just after a two-column document with varying column width, I would suggest to take a look at the flowfram package which allows to customize column layout and width. I used it for statistical handouts with text on a .7\textwidth column, and illustration on the remaining spaces (before discovering Tufte class), but I think it should not be too difficult to use it for two-column document with text only.
