Well superjoe, it can be done, but the idea (and in all practicallity) it makes sense to go disc up front. If you're riding properly, you should use more front brake for controlled stopping power. Say, 60-70% front.
A lot of people don't know this and as a result can't ride as fast as others. Why you ask? You can only ride as fast as you know you can stop. If you know how to stop quickly, you'll push yourself to ride faster. With confidence, comes speed!
