I'm somewhat familiar with X3D-Edit's collaborative features.  It  
appears like google has created a stored hierarchy that can be  
modified by XMPP messages.  Does X3D-Edit store the XML hierarchy, the  
text hierarchy (lines of text), or some combination.  I am wondering  
if multiple hierarchical views are considered in either system.  I  
understand that one view of a hierarchy is a sub-hierarchy.  I also  
know that you can take 2 hierarchies and create a new root on top of  
both of them.

I guess I'd like to see what google wave could do with editing X3D  
xml.  It looks like SVG is already possible.  Doing the whole thing in  
a web browser seems amazing.

It is certainly possible that what we are seeing is the culmination of  
migration of a lot of desktop apps (email and im) to the web.  When  
will netbeans run inside a web browser?
