Multiple mice on target machine at the same time

Currently Teamviewer disables remote mouse movement when the local user is moving theirs, and in the past there used to be a rather amusing battle for control of the mouse with the remote and local fighting each other. To me it would seem to make a lot more sense if instead Teamviewer simply added a second mouse for each remote connection. This way both the local and remote user could click things, move things around, type into seperate fields on the same machine without interfering with eachother. I realize it's probably a niche situatuation but I have been in situations where I would have liked to tell the user to do one thing on their machine, while I simuntaniously do something else (on their machine).

In case anyone is wondering if it is possible, this company seems to have done it: [the link has been removed]
