Theoretically, any time you can get to a dual-link DVI cable (eg.
http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A), you should be able to break
it out further into two separate single-link DVI cables.  As long as the
individual monitors can be driven by a single-link DVI, you should be
fine.  AFAIK, that means about 1920x1080 (1080p equivalent) each.  I
don't know how well it'd work, but maybe something like this:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=101&cp_id=10114&cs_id=1011409&p_id=8118&seq=1

I haven't done this.  Just theoretically possible.
