Hmmm... connecting two unipolar caps antiparallel appears to me like 
making it sure that either of the caps _will_ be charged up with wrong 
polarity as soon as a voltage is applied.

On a related note, I've read that bipolar electrolytic caps can be 
simulated by connecting two unipolar caps in _series_, back-to-back. 
Even for that, I didn't really want to try my luck. Tantalum caps are 
absolutely bad at tolerating reverse voltage charges.

Best regards,
