The preceding email got long, so I wanted to quickly highlight one thing.
We seem to have (at least) two separate problems to solve here:
1. how/when to detect/flag all changes in a single version
2. how to represent changes from multiple versions simultaneously
Key issues for #1 are whether to do so at edit time, or at export time, and
if so how. For one starting point on thinking that through, see my previous
Key issues for #2 are currently being addressed in the revision marks
thread. I haven't thought those through at all.
As always, I want to make this distinction explicit so that people realize
when and whether they're talking past each other. I think the two issues
are at least somewhat orthogonal.
Obviously, we eventually need a design which works on both levels, but in
the mean time, it may help to tackle each one on the assumption that the
other can be solved.
