'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?
