   The technical problems I've had with "one Emacs for two people" had

   ... mostly irrelevant ..., either we wanted really close
   interaction, in which case "one typist, 4 eyes" worked better ...

   or otherwise a system based on CVS-with-frequent-commit...

This is both interestng and helpful.  It is good advice.

It should become a standard part of some document -- perhaps in the
Emacs manual in a general node on remote cooperation.  The node could
describe `talk-connect'

    (By the way, in which Texinfo file is `talk-connect' currently
    documented?  I just looked and could not find it!)

and `make-frame-on-display', for fast connections, (emacs)Multiple Displays

In addition the node could describe the `emacsclient' hack, and for
sufficiently fast connections, the use of VNC and maybe something
such as `gnomemeeting'.
