Given the low cost of today's actual switches, it's certainly
affordable to do so.  I can remember when 10Mbs hubs were $100 per
port, so ~$20/30 for an 8-port 100Mbs/gigabit full duplex switch seems
like it's practically free to me.

Some people seem to want to use the separate NIC approach because they
don't understand how switches work and think they're more like hubs.
Having two network cards certainly works, but it unnecessarily
complicates things IMO.
