In general, implementing the protocol is the easy part. It is 'just'
XMPP and Twisted has support for that. It uses the XMPP Publish
Subscribe extension protocol [1], for which Wokkel [2] has extensive
support that should move to Twisted proper.

The thing that is harder is interpreting all the commands and applying
the Operational Transformation [1] algorithms that are communicated
throught the rather easy federation protocol. Oh, and use Protocol
Buffers, of course.
