Hmmm, I definitely have a second TinyMCE editor in one of my custom posts
types working fine (though I didn't need nor try to use the image uploader).
No hacking required. It even has visual/html toggle.

I'm heading out now for the rest of the day, but will try to post some code
late tomorrow (I'm on-site with a client all day) or Saturday.
