Upgrading multiple MOSS 2007 web front ends at same time

I'm currently updating my MOSS 2007 farm with hotfixes. I've installed the hotfix on all of them, but running the configuration wizard is taking 2 hours per box (I have 12 servers). I was wondering what would happen if I kicked off the configuration wizard on all of my servers at the same time? Would it screw up my web front ends or possibly even hurt the farm config database? I could be done in 2 hours instead of another 10 hours. What do you guys think?

Personally I wouldn't take the risk. No real view at the moment on the issues, but if you get into trouble you will lose those 8 hours you win in a heartbeat trying to fix the system. Not even sure if your farm is in a "supported state" if you run them all at the same time.

I confirmed from 3 other sources that I'm asking for a world of trouble if I attempt it. So even though I literally worked for 17 hours straight upgrading, at least I have a farm that is still running.
