they're already planning on building their own "euro-style" (i.e., 3-sided, ~15k seating) stadium right next to SJC airport, which coincidentally should open around the same time as the Niners' stadium (2014)....Quakes have yet to break ground on it though, so don't hold your breath for 2014, but once started it shouldn't take as long to finish...
i'd imagine it'd only make sense for the Niners to lease their new stadium to the Quakes for "big-draw" games (vs LA Galaxy, friendlies with big Euro clubs, playoffs etc) during the NFL offseason to make a few extra $$$ and the Quakes would be foolish to keep using OAC, Stanford Stadium or Candlestick for such events when a brand new 60K+ stadium is just down the road
