How will one Wiimote work with a Wii and a Wii U set up?

Just bought a Wii U and I'm waiting for it to arrive. I plan on using my regular Wii still, probably for Homebrew, but I'm wondering what will happen when I try to use one Wiimote with two devices that recognize it. Is that going to be a problem? Will I have to unplug one or just deal with it running in the background on a different input?

Every time you switch between the Wii and the Wii U, you will have to re-pair it to the device you wish to use. Alas!

Bummer. Another first-world problem, I guess. Thanks!

Since you're springing for the Wii U how about just getting a second Wiimote for cheap

What do you really want to do with the old wii? just jailbreak the vWii on the wii u and run whatever you'd want to run on that...
