In-camera HDR? Really?

In another thread, someone brought up the idea of doing a sort of in-camera HDR by simply using the multiple exposure function, and using a different exposure on each. The camera automatically layers the photos together, with auto-gain compensation. The idea is that for example, if you use one exposure for the highlights and one for the shaows,you'll get a type of HDR when they are combined.

My first thought is that this is no different from taking a longer exposure photo...

Any thoughts? if in fact this does produce a pseudo-HDR image, i'd be very intrigued.

Unfortunately, auto-braketing seems to be turned off when you have multiple exposures set (why in the world would it be disabled??)
