Collaborative coding

Need:

A way to collaboratively write a piece of code with someone on another computer, including:

  • Real-time, keystroke-by-keystroke updating as the other person types (a la Google Wave)
  • Integration with my editor or IDE of choice (e.g., Vim, Eclipse, DrRacket) so I can run the code at any time. I’m okay with actually writing the code in some other environment (e.g., a web browser).
  • Platform independence
This could be a cross between Dropbox (for real file system access), Google Docs or Etherpad (for real-time updates), and Mozilla Skywriter (for platform independence).

Anybody have suggestions?
