Not tested (because I don't have even one webcam here), but would
mencoder be an option for you? Many years ago, I've been using a
computer with two Haupauge TV/video cards and accessed their video
inputs independently by accessing /dev/bktr0 with one mencoder,
and /dev/bktr1 with the other... not sure if mencoder could do
the same with webcams controlled by webcamd...
