Tobit would be inappropriate for the data I am using because the data
are not censored, rather they are defined over [0,1]. From a quick
glance, it appears that arcsine is appropriate for binomial data,
which again my data are not. However, I am unfamilar with arcsine and
gllamm so I'll look over the references provided. Thank you.

That would solve your problem a bit more elegantly than SUR approaches as you could easily allow corr(e1,e2). That would certainly be a good R project. :)
