Can I use an eccentric BB?

Can I use an ENO flip-flop hub (it's self-tensioning) on a mtb frame with an eccentric bottom bracket? I want to build up a new bike using the components on my old SS, which includes the ENO hub, and I spotted a nice new frame with an eccentric BB. But if both hub and BB self tension, then what?

It'll work, but they'll be redundant.
