Whoops - hate to self reply but I found it.  On gentoo you can put udev
rules in /etc/udev/local.rules, and the following work for me:

BUS=="usb", DRIVER=="pl2303", ID=="2-1:1.0", SYMLINK="mythser/rca1"
BUS=="usb", DRIVER=="pl2303", ID=="2-2:1.0", SYMLINK="mythser/rca2"

Here is my lsusb output:

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial

(The one file is zero-based, the other is one-based - go figure.)
Obviously not the cleanest solution, but I couldn't find any other
reliable way to tell them apart.  So much for plug-and-play...  :)
