Is ofwebkit the implementation you're talking about?

I don't think git is the right tool for realtime collaborative editing. I 
would suggest implementing the infinote protocol [0], which would make it 
compatible with kobby[1] and gobby[2]. I don't know if it's feasible to 
implement this in PHP as I'm not really a PHP programmer, but if it's possible 
it would be really nice.
