Actually, couldn't you just launch one of the frontends as one user and the
second one as a second user and then use different lirc files for each user?

Also, I think you could copy just the myth executible to a different
filename so you have two executibles. Then you run each of them and define
them separately in lirc. I've done this before, but not with myth, so I'm
not 100% sure it'll work. But it's worth a try. You'd have to recopy the
executible after each upgrade.
