It's fairly easy to do.  I can't remember the exact format, but essentially 
you add an element around each panel like:

<userinputpanel order="0">
	Config info for first UI Panel
<userinputpanel order="1">
	Config info for second UI Panel

I don't remember the exact syntax, but it's easy to set up.  I'm working on 
something similar, currently called SimplePanelSpec, that, if accepted by the 
development team, would use the same formatting and implementation to allow 
more multiple instances of panels.

To get the exact style for UI Panel, you'll have to check the docs under

So you're basically using it as multiple TargetPanels?
