The price is that you have another motor and need firmware changes. The benefit is that you avoid the headache of reattaching heads which seems to me highly non-trivial.

print towers on the side of your print, one from each extruder.
the idea is that by the time you get to the next layer, it would have printed on the tower, and cleaned up the next upcoming leak...
keeps both nozzles active throughout the print. as long as its extruding and retracting ... it might prevent the drips.
