Even if you could do that, the problem is knowing when each frame will be displayed on the screen. I mean, something inside the projector or attached to the lens would need to know when a frame changes, and signal that to a glass or a alternating polarizer attached to the lens.
I think the best way to experience 3D is to buy a cheap 3D projector like the Acer one, and use a two projector setup. Another way would be to have bough 2 VW-60s or 2 VW-70s (b-stock). This approach still has problems and a lot of DIY...you'd need to add polarized filters, etc. But it would work if the screen is kept like at 90" with a HP screen. Still, it'd consume twice the energy. The good thing about this approach is that it is passive, and that you'd avoid having alternating images to one eye then the other (which in rare cases could be a problem).
I think there are many missing 3D due to expecting a lot from IQ before jumping in. I would have never thought about even the remotest possible idea of having 2 PJ. But I think I might get an Acer just for 3D.
The other option which you will hate is using something like PowerDVD 10 Ultra and only getting an ugly version of 3D (anaglyph), and using the software that can make almost all regular games rendered in 3D actually displayed as 3D anaglyph as well. This can cause headaches, delivers extremely bad IQ, but can provide a sense of temporary relief. I know about it because I tried. Sometimes, 3D can be amazing and provide a different experience.
Personally, I'd just taste 3D from time to time with analygh, to get the courage to buy a second projector - a cheap DLP with DLP link (there's a 720p from Acer and some Optomas that can serve well), until good quality 3D is affordable. And at the current prices for the JVC's or Sony's (and also considering how dim they are in 3d), it could be several years away.
