Try this analogy.  One television, two stubborn kids that want to watch 
different programs.  One has the remote, the other the buttons on the 
TV.  What happens?  How do you make both happy.  Solve that and get rich 

Even better analogy.  One inbox.  Two people on opposite sides each want 
'first dibs' on each item that drops.  How do you make them both happy, 
especially if they are equally stubborn clones?

That is a request, not an offer.
