That's a good point. So there is a need for collaborate editing or lets
say realtime collaborate working, which is often done using irc, but I
think that this way of collaboration can be improved.

So you think nobody would change their favourite environment to eclipse
 just because working together with Saros? That might be true, but what
about doing reviews, you just have to use eclipse to do pair reviews,
you don't have to switch to eclipse totally, you can keep on developing
with what ever you want.
