Lots of replies, not many answers to the original question.

The best thing is a 2 camera body setup as mentioned.

The good and cheap solution is glueing 2 rear lenscaps together. Then you mount the cameralens to the empty cap, turn it around and mount the next lens on the camera. Full control all the time.

Another idea - check this article (picture in the end):
They only make it for Canon and Nikon mounts, so, I guess, for m4/3 one would have to come up with DIY solution. ($80 for one lens mount seems too much anyway)

I was thinking about gluing few rear lens caps to something, probably to some belt fixture or a neck strap. I wouldn't trust superglue, I would attach rear lens cap with pair of cramps or flat screws, flat enough in order not to scratch the glass.
