Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

what about unison?


two fileservers, each end of the 10Mb line, and the users just connect to
the local fileserver.
changes on either side are automatically replicated, conflicts are detected
and displayed.
looks a bit more end user (personal user) targeted so not sure how it'll
stand up to enterprise level abuse.

might still want to consider using a clustered filesystem though, even on 1
side of the line there might be more than one user trying to edit a file
