Hmm, well, this may not be exactly what you want, but you could just have 2 
Xservers running on different virtual terminals.  That's just a quick-fix, 

One thing that you might find useful is Ctrl-Alt-+ and Ctrl-Alt-- (use numpad 
+ and -) -- these zoom in and out at different resolutions (try and see what 
I mean; it's easier than explaining it).
