Is is possible to run multiple instances of skype client on an iphone.

I would like to be able to to login to two separate skype accounts and have the run simultaneously.

Is it possible?

For instance, if there was an unofficial skype client, I could install it along the official one with different user name.

Not possible with the official Skype App.

Running unofficial Skype client is possible, but recently Skype changed the rules and pushed out third parties, running Skype gateways (like Fring).
