Ambidextrous woodworkers?

Gentle readers,

After a crazy bout of work-related travel and the Holidays, I'm back to my shop and the web.  I have a question for you all.  I'm an ambidextrous woodworker, meaning that I saw left handed but use planes right handed.  I wondered if there were any others like me.  If so, how do you deal with work holding? Do you set your bench up to accommodate your plane hand? Do you have more than one vise? I have only a leg vise on the left leg on my Roubo.  I was thinking about trying the vise on the right leg, just to see what it is like.
