It'd certainly be nice to have some way to share edits across emacs clients - 
one that functions as a minor mode on top of all major modes. That would be 
amazing! You could have an additional comments buffer that maps to lines that 
would be saved to everyone's disk. Code reviews could be made on the fly. I 
don't think there's a single programming environment that provides that.
