well, you could use the qmailqueue patch and two qmail installs on the same 
system to make it work.  as far as I know, the chkuser patch uses conf-qmail 
to find the home directory.  You'd have your say, /var/qmail2 qmail-send 
running, and use /var/qmail2/bin/qmail-queue to queue the mail, and it would 
have your smtproutes and stuff.

also, you'd have to either nfs mount or make a local copy of your domains 
directories so the chkuser patch can look for .qmail files and such.
