Is there a way to share pictures among two iPhoto users, preferrably on a NAS?

My wife and I keep separate iPhoto '11 libraries, and both use our cameras a lot. Is there any way to share pictures besides sticking our SD cards into both computers every time we load new pictures?
I want to buy a NAS for this (and to store music & movies) but I have read that Synology NAS devices will eat the iPhoto Library and/or your pictures. I have read that Dropbox is a way to share two copies of one iPhoto Library, but that this, too, will eat the iPhoto Library and/or your pictures -- and it would require one of us giving up their library.
Is there now a solution to this that lets me still use iPhoto? (I just got my wife to go from PS Elements 5 on Windows XP to iPhoto 11 on a Mac, and I don't think I can get her to make another big move any time soon.)
