X-Serving Multiple Virtual Console

One of the great features when running from the console is the ability to have multiple logins by using Alt+F2...Alt+F9.

It is regrettable to loose that when using an X interface. For example, it would be great if I could just suspend what I'm doing and let my wife login and read her email, etc.

I know that X is built to serve multiple displays, and even a multi-headed workstation. Is it possible to have VIRTUAL displays - ":1.0", etc. and somehow switch among them? It would seem if the console itself is virtualized, the alternate display(s) could be assigned to virtual-console#2, etc.
