Funny you asked. I made several releases of disis_wiimote since, 
including making it output-compatible with vanilla wiimote. Also, the 
latest version 0.9.0 has a working passthrough mode (MotionPlus + 
Nunchuk at the same time). Documentation is still a bit basic regarding 
this one, but it is also fairly straightforward (basically requires an 
additional flag called togglePassthrough). This version requires custom 
L2Ork version of cwiid library (also downloadable from the l2ork site) 
which has a number of bug fixes and some fundamental changes to the way 
the code works. NB: this library is not backwards compatible. One of 
them includes complete auto-detection of extensions without having to 
deal with separate flags for each of the extensions (with the exception 
of the passthrough mode since that does some really unusual init things 
from the hardware perspective that have warranted an entirely new thread 
in libcwiid to deal with it). AFAIK this is currently the only FOSS 
implementation that gives you working passthrough support.

My hope is to submit cwiid changes upstream soon...
