Twin SLR?

How many people are using a Twin SLR as their rig? I'm using a Loreo 3D lens with my 7D and have had a lot of fun. However the lens often leaves a lot to be desired, in particular image sharpness and flare control is pretty bad.

I'm thinking that a smallish SLR mounted side-by-side with one inverted to get the lenses closer could be a reasonable solution. Things to solve:

-Need trigger to shoot both cameras at once

-Focus. Could manually focus both lenses. Would be even better if the lenses were connected with a strap or gear mechanism to keep them synchronized with a follow focus like device.

Another option would be if two cameras like a Canon S100 or Sony RX100 could be synchronized via software. Not sure if this exists?
