I'm not particularly familiar with Extreme Programming, but if the pairs
are consistent, you could always give a programming pair an SVN login.

If the pairs are not consistent, you could still follow this approach but
it will get out of hand quickly depending on the number of programmers
contributing. Finding out statistics on an individual programmer would
still be tricky, but at least this way pairs would be "blameable" and the
information you need would be present, even if it is tricky to collate.
