I can imagine.  I set one up for a client.  Dual and Quad video cards,
with DVI outputs.  17" LCDs... he set them up in an arc on his desk, for
watching stocks.  The whole setup was nearly a circle by the time he was
done.  Very impressive, but the mouse-coasting distance was insane. 
Once you're above three monitors, you need another navigation system.
