Ditto that... I've had experience with Adobe's Version Cue, terminal cmd 
line RCS and Magic Carpet. The latter tops them all for simplicity and 
flexibility, and, if it's Revolution stacks you are wanting to 
collaborate on, well, it's really the tool of choice... Run, don't walk 
to Altuit to get this little gem.

Note, I think it might serve equally well for other kinds of documents 
as well...  version control over,  MSword docs, or OmniOutliner files...
