It's hard enough now to get Senate confirmation of Federal judicial appointments, including those of Supreme Court nominees. The prospect of multiplying 9 appointments by a factor of X, presumably in one fell swoop, is, um... not pretty.

And, in any case, I don't think that having more than one group of judges as the final arbiters of Constitutional law would work out too well -- there would inevitably be conflicts, and what then?
