May be you mean

#+begin_src sh :tangle '("filename1" "filemane2")
# some shell script

IMO this is very specific use case but still it could be solved using existing
technique. I would suggest storing all configuration files (as well as Org
documents) in git repository, tangle them on a host, push to a repository and
pull them on destination host (I do this myself, it helps me to avoid errors).

Again, IMO, this is very specific use case. You could use standard way to get
desire result. Besides if you want tangle to several files they content will
be the same, won't it be? So you couldn't get different results from one code
block. I do a bit similar thing: I have Org document describing shell
configuration for several hosts. I tangle to different files using standard
technique and use 'noweb' feature to adapt to different hosts. 

May be it would worth if you describe what you want to achieve and how you are
doing it now?
