Can I have multiple open arcpy.da.InsertCursor at the same time?

Is this possible or do you have to delete one cursor before opening another?

I create the first cursor, make a row, and insert it.  I make the second cursor, make a row, attempt to insert it, and I get the error "workspace already in transaction mode". 

While creating cursors in the new form is much faster (I measured 10X) it should still be faster to have all of the cursors I`m going to use created once rather than 50000 times.  I`m loading features in a random order from randomly ordered XML files.
