I guess I thought of the dual throttle setup as a safety feature.  If the
pilot (I guess that would be me) should become incapacitated, and if the
person in the right seat also had some piloting experience, well, maybe....
or maybe not.  If that second throttle could also be a hazard, maybe it
shouldn't be there; or be like the right-side rudder pedals in a Bonanza;
fold away when not in use (metaphorically speaking).
