Making one multiseat user able to switch vts?

In general it would be nice, if multiseat workstation administrator could 
switch to vt[1-6]. Does Xorg support it somehow and is it possible to 
implement (well, kindly ask someone to do it) such option? Otherwise 
multiseat on Linux is quite problematic, if no ssh is used...
(also I noticed a problem with multiseat, that, if I stop X and login manager 
permanently, I still could not switch to any vts)

PS: sorry for duplication, but I wanted to write it more clearly.
