There was an patch to Terminal services for XP that allowed XP (Pro?) to
accept more then 2 Remote desktop connections at the same time.
They used dll from beta version that allowed multiple connections. I
guess you will not be able to use it (government, legal stuff and all),
but if someone doesn't not have that problem, he could use it to run one
XP instance on the server to allow multiple users to work on it.
