Question 2 Phones - 1 Google Account for Apps??

So my wife and I are getting our HTC Hero's tomorrow provided we catch the UPS truck. One thing I have been wondering and trying to figure out is setting up each phone so that once we purchase an app it is usable by both of us. Currently on our iPod Touches we just use the same iTunes account so that solves it. Is it possible to do this as well on Android phones and then also have another main Google account to sync with (in our case it being a Google apps account) so that we each get our own email and calender's?


Follow up bonus question for you readers:
If the above is possible is there any problem have a Google account with the same Google Apps email login (ie joeblow@domain.com as email in apps and then joeblow@domain.com as google account name) as well? I use my apps email as my Google account login for Picasa, Reader, etc... for other Google Services not in Apps yet.

Thanks for any insight and tips you can provide in this set up!!

Using the mail app you can setup as many email accounts as you need (using IMAP) but you can only use one gmail account (apps for domain or normal) for your main google account. This account will be used for the gmail app the people app and the market. So you can share one account which will allow you the purchase an app once (but this isn't very ethical). The down side is it will mean that all your contacts sync to one google account though and the gmail app will be tied to this account.

Ethics aside (we have different views in this situation) - that makes me wonder though. If I have a GAFYD email set as the main email and calendar and do not have a Google account with that email it must ask for a different account for the market?

At this point doing the UPS wait to get the phones and try things out.
