I need to replace a bad shifting cable on my P 200. I've ordered a pair... Would you just replace both on principle or just the broken one?

I always replace both. I think it's easier to do all at once, rather than one now and the other 2 months from now. And it lets me figure out why one broke, and clean and lubricate everything. That and I hate pulling a P headset apart, it never goes back together without a lot of fuss.

Replace both if the old one isn't frayed keep it for a spare.
