Fascinating thread, it's been great to follow the huge increase in interest
of late :)

One question that I'm hoping might get answered before people rewrite
anything:
is there a plan for keeping the OT implementations of federated
clients/servers in sync?

It's a requirement both for federation to servers not running WiaB, plus
client/server split for clients not using WiaB code, though I don't think
it's been answered.
GWT was GWave's solution to that; allowing a java server, plus java
(robots/android) and JS (web) clients, and can now even do iOS given J2objc

Alternatives are possible (e.g. standards & suite of acceptance tests, or
generators based on a language-neutral spec, or ....)
but would require a good justification to move away from having a GWT
library as the single source of truth in implementation.

Note that that discussion (ot implementation) should be separate from UI
layout / interaction language, but the latter seems much more flexible in
terms of solutions.

(and to join in John's target-making: Joseph, did you try 'GWT' in that
search rather than 'google web toolkit'? :)
