Check out my multiple-agenda-buffers branch from http://github.com/7max/org-mode

Its designed exactly for that (multiple independent agenda buffers
living together). to enable it use, M-x org-toggle-sticky-agenda

You will have to set different agenda names for different agenda views
in your org-agenda-custom-commands variable like so:

 (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
       '(("a" "Agenda and NEXT (priority)"
          ((agenda ""
                   ((org-agenda-span 'day)))
           (tags-todo "/!NEXT"
                      ((org-agenda-overriding-header "Next Tasks")
                       (org-agenda-tags-todo-honor-ignore-options t)
                       (org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled t)
                       (org-agenda-todo-ignore-deadlines t)
                       (org-tags-match-list-sublevels t)
                        '(priority-down category-keep)))))
          ((org-agenda-buffer-name "*Agenda*")))
         ("t" "TODO entries"
          todo ""
          ((org-agenda-buffer-name "*Todo List*")))))

Carsten suggested that this will eventually get merged, but I think
people may be afraid, as it's a bit of a major change, converting most
agenda related variables to buffer local, and at least initially had a
several bugs, which took me a few weeks to catch and fix.

But I've been running on this branch for a month+, and quality of
my org-moding had greatly improved, since now all my agendas pop-out
immediately instead of rebuilding for several seconds.
