   btfsc  intcon, t0if
   goto   toifint
   btfsc  intcon, ...
   goto   ...

I usually do the latter.  You give up a little efficiency if the two
interrupts happen to come together, but you don't waste cycles every time
when they don't.  It's also just a little less complex, and therefore
maintainable, which is usually more important that a few cycles anyway.
