I'm using the fglrx drivers - don't know how well other cards / drivers work. Using the ati-config command with dual head was pretty much all I did - everything just worked.
I do mean to test the open source drivers when I have a free moment (only recently fixed up my gentoo install to allow it).
I've never looked into the multi-pointer stuff, had no reason to, but I suspect problems would arise. It would be interesting though.
