VNC, or maybe synergy  if you don't need to see the screen locally. Synergy
can't have more than one 'master' pointer though, but that could change with
the introduction of MPX.

Our IT-department uses VNC (or something like it) for exactly these cases.
Besides I'm not really sure if interconnecting different X-server input
devices is something that the X-server should be addressing (at all), it
feels more like a problem for an external program (VNC/Synergy).
