Thanks, everyone!

Excellent clarification as to the options:

* KVM switch.

* Remote desktop: LogMeIn, Windows-style Terminal Server/Remote Desktop (RDP protocol), Unix-style (SSH/VNC).

* VM (such as Parallels).

* Network-enabled keyboard/mouse sharing to control multiple machines-with-monitors, a la Synergy.

I like the remote desktop idea because then I'd simply have multiple windows open on the one monitor, much as I do anyway (email, internet browser, authoring app, etc.). And I could then more easily justify the expense of a fabulously big monitor :-).

Not sure if that would allow me to copy/paste from one machine's app window to the other machine's app window, but probably.

And this would certainly be the least clutter option, that's for sure. Guess I'd just have to see how well it worked in practice over my wireless network.
