Yes. All VW's except for the very early models have dual circuit master cylinders. There is an outlet for the front brakes and an outlet for the rear. This is a safety backup - if one set goes out, the other set will cover.
It depends a bit on how conservative you are.
The basic idea is great, as the pedal won't have to slide over the sole of your shoe, so no matter how the pedal is hinged, and where on your foot you place the pedal, it'll always move freely.
The bad news is that it takes some getting used to, if at all possible, depending how good you are with the change of feel.
