Alban's protocol is based on D-Bus messages. That's why I've used it.

D-Bus has the advantage, that many applications under GNU/Linux (and
also BSD, and also OS X) are prepared for this meanwhile. The plugins
for gedit and gvim, written by Alban, are very straightforward.

If there would be a more general interface for collaborative editing,
one could apply D-Bus messages as one implementation of such an interface.
