All the particulars are in this thread, but I agree it would be a great feature for OBS to implement in some sort of native form instead of having to use workarounds.viewtopic.php?f=7&t=329
Just capturing with OBS works pretty well as I mentioned in the above thread. That's just using the lightest encode option and oodles of gigabit bandwidth. Jim may eventually be able to work out something that doesn't even use the encoder or uses a lighter weight one for intranet travel.
I don't think this would be a big deal to support. You can pretty much do it right now with OBS, only OBS can't use a RTMP stream as a source for it, so you have to use something like Xsplit.
You can get a AMD Athlon 2 640 for like $80 on sale. It's much cheaper then buying a hex core and using gigabit as a medium is cheaper then buying a capture card, plus you can put the second PC wherever you want in your house.

If you can get a network connection of sufficiently high bandwidth it should be easily doable. I want to personally experiment with these things in the future myself as well.
