For within X, I don't think so.

I have a USB KVM, and I have had problems when switching, the KVM seemed 
to hang and needed its power cycled.

That involves unplugging all USB connectors to hosts that have power to 
the motherboard, and replugging them.

Fortunately, it seems to have settled down, it's a fairly tedious way to 
swap KV & M.
