what i have used a lot in the past for this task is 'screen' which runs
on posix boxes and lets multiple users share a terminal. It's essential
that both sides in pair programming can take a turn in typing and
suggesting stuff. Obviously physically sitting next to each other is
usually a richer experience than chatting on some IRC channel and having
a "screen" session but the latter is quite workable.

Although i like to apply subversion and its ideas to my projects
it's not a solution to everything (yet :-).
