Good question.  On windows platforms, windows automatically multiplexes 
the movement of two (or more) mice into a single movement.  If you have 
two mice in windows, and move them in exact opposite directions, your 
cursor won't move.

I have a feeling that linux, or really any other system that /can/ 
handle multiple mice do the same thing.

This may suggest that it is an operating system architectural limitation 
because no one wanted to answer the question, what would it mean for two 
mouse pointers to be wandering around the screen?
