It doesn't seem to need many complete rewrites. :)

This is being done without a total rewrite.

Really what you need is an open API for communicating with such cloud-like collaboration services that can be plugged into any number of editors. I'm sure a web front end will also be useful for those quick edit sessions. In the mean time what can I use for C-x f collab:/server/project/file?

Wouldn't Infinote work as a protocol? It is the one used by the editors gobby and kobby (and the sobby server, of course).
