I gave this a shot, and it seems to work with a couple of caveats:

1.  The audio from both frontends is mixed through the soundcard  
(should have expected this, is there anyway to split the audio to a 
different card?)
2.  The resolutions of both mythfrontends is identical - I would need 
them to be different, i think this might be a command line option.
3.  The remote controls both frontends simultaneously, what one does the 
other does -  this would also need to be separated to be useful

I think there are command line options to specify configuration file 
path as well, so this might fix most of the issues....
