I've just been experimenting with this today. This method is working for

The default single.php template is used, but the loop will loop through to
show all posts with the same slug.

Apart from this, the only side effect I have so far discovered is that if
you trash one of the duplicate posts you will get a 404 for the other one
until you delete it permanently.
