I considered it in a recent project, but ended up with a single PIC.

The application would have needed some transfer of data between the
2 PICs. It soon became apparent that they were going to spend more time
handing the data transfer than they were on their primary task.

So instead of 2 C84s, I went for a single C73.

Synergy does not apply to multi-processor systems. You always end up
with less than the sum of the parts because of the overhead of sharing
data.
