Try this:

Synch up the clips on the timeline (I'm assuming you have a slate or something similar? If not use the "Synchronize Clips" command from the event viewer).

Make a compound clip once they're synched, and turn off the upper clip by selecting it and hitting 'v'. This lets you watch your program underneath and still see the other angle via the filmstrip.

Use the razor blade to cut segments you want overlaid, select those segments independently, and turn them back on using 'v'. The rest of your track will still be hidden. If you wish, you can then drop the clip you turned on into the main sequence so you can add transitions.

It's kind of a clumsy work-around I know, but it will probably get me through some projects until Apple gets around to adding a proper multiclip feature. For other, more involved multiclip projects, I'll probably have to start my edit in FCP7, export the finished multiclip edit, and finish the project in FCPX (or just do the whole thing in 7).
