Eclipse mining lets you mine for both namecoins and bitcoins.  But does your miner's processing power have to allocate half to each if you wanted to do both at the same time?

The Bitcoin network protocol was designed to be extremely flexible. It can be used to create timed transactions, escrow transactions, multi-signature transactions, etc. The current features of the client only hint at what will be possible in the future.

No, it reuses your hashes. It's free money.

Thanks.  Was arguing over this on a different board.

There appears to be other online currencies starting up as well...Litecoin, Devcoin, IXCoin, I0Coin, Liquidcoin...will any of these work with merged mining as well?

the same proof of work is submitted to the different *coinds
BTC and NMC use a different algorythm to Litecoin, Devcoin, IXCoin, I0Coin, so they cannot be merge mined together
the scrypt based coins could be merge mined to work with the other scrypt based coins if the work was done to make it possible

No, Devcoin, IXCoin, and IOCoin can be merge mined - http://mmpool.bitparking.com offers those three plus Bitcoin and Namecoin.
