They wont cancel each other out. I dont remember seeing anything in the NEC that says you cant either. From the people Ive talked to they seem to me prone to nuisance trips, but their problem may have been a poor connection on the gfci, they are prone to that.

Think about it this way. All bathrooms have gfci outlets, alot of hair dryers and curling irons have them built into the cable. SWMBO never complains about one tripping the other.

On the other hand, it costs twice as much.

So as I am walking out the door this morning I think to my self:
"self, going to work on Monday is like knowing you're going to get kicked in the nuts. You just don't know when or by who"

So odds are if i just install a GFCI breaker and a regular outlet, I'm good to go, with maybe an occasional nuisance trip, for a brew system I'll be monitoring, or an RV with a Backup battery? (good point about the hair dryers, i have seen those before, but it never occurred to me that thats what im talking about)
