We're not working separately.

We are working together, looking over each other's
shoulder constantly. Discussing, etc.

Even when we go "single monitor", we move from
one guy's laptop to another, because we both
have sharply customized EMACS environments
- we can't use each other's key bindings.

It is acceptable to check in as either author.
It is annoying to have to remember who is
the check-in person today.
Some other folks down the hall are doing classic
single monitor/LCD/keyboard/mouse pair programming.
You would think they would not care who checks
in -- but they report that Subversion's limitation
is annoying. 
Why is it a problem for them, doing classic pair
programming? I don't know... but I suspect that 
it is customized user environment.
