'geographically separate' could range from in the same room to a
continent away, as long as two people have separate keyboards and screens.

IDLE is Python-friendly, free, and FOSS. I wonder how hard it would be
to pair programming connectivity as an extension. A couple of questions:
1. Do the systems you have considered operate as an editor + satellite
terminal or as synchronized peer editors.
2. Do two systems connect directly peer-to-peer or through a server?
