Thanks, would be great if it can improve your work.

It is much smaller than VNC, because only the diff of the text is send
via XMPP. So only (compressed)text is send.

Yes, the files are stored in the local workspace and are kept sync
between users. The normal way you work is that the host shares his/the
project with others. But everybody can also just check out the project
via svn/git/etc. before they start a session.
In don't know if i got your question right. Derived files aren't send
via Saros, e.g. .svn isn't synchronized.
