Ok, reasonable. Multihead with spice pretty much requires a guest agent
anyway, so I'm sure we'll can figure a way to handle this.

With two mice you still have just one cursor. Just plug a usb mouse
into your laptop, you can move the single pointer with both usb mouse
and touchpad then. Didn't try what happens with two tablets, but I
expect it wouldn't be different ...
