I have fairly serious calluses in those two areas, and have for a number 
of years.  Nothing heavy enough to take a podiatric appliance to, or 
anything, but definitely toughened skin.  I would say that my ergonomic 
habits are less than awesome, but my carpal tunnels only bother me for a 
day or so every three or four months.  Usually after I've been working 
entirely too hard.... :-)
