Anyone use 2 camera systems (Nikon/Cannon, Nikon/Pentax, etc...?)

I'm looking around for a small travel kit. I've got my eye on the Fuji X100, but that won't come out until March 2011. Obviously, the D3000/D3100/D5000 spring to mind, but I must say I'm tempted by the Pentax K-r offering. One thing that has me hesitating is the "two camera systems" conundrum. I've read time and again how difficult it can be to manage two completely different sets of controls and not get confused.

So I'm wondering what has your experience been - is it all that difficult to run with two different brands? Is this something you get used to pretty quickly? Or is it awkward and gets you fumbling around a lot? thanks!
