Open source collaboration [WAS: Re: Rev vs. AJAX... Ajax vs TAOO]

My plugin HotKeyNO2 tracks ANY change to any control and provides a rollback
mechanism but I messed up in the memory subsystems requiring a rewrite...

Alas it taxes a lot the environment to watch it all... I have plans to make
it faster and less intrussive once other processes are in place - journaling
might be more interesting a mechanism to research? Incremental or block
updates are also planned for remote clients as well as macro-creation and
more. Not a big barrier...  

The more clients TAOO gets, the more this is going to be a necessity or yet
another set of features...
