Running mulitople servers on one computer?

Is it possible to run multiple servers on the same computer using different iTunes applications? I want to assign the applications to different sound cards and use them to control the music in different rooms in my house simultaneously. Is this at all possible?

At least at present, I don't think there's any way to do this. OS X doesn't let more than one copy of iTunes run, as far as I know, and since they'd share libraries and preferences, it'd be difficult to get it to work the way you'd expect.

That said, Steve Jobs demonstrated, during the Panther rollout, something called "Fast User Switching" (or some such). This allows > 1 person to log on at once...and it's possible that both of these "accounts" could be running iTunes...we'll know more when they roll it out. netTunes will probably not work as-is in that situation (for one thing, the server name would be wrong), but it'd be possible to make some changes should it prove workable.

Hope that helps!
