The protocol is slightly funky for using swank, which encodes everything as an emacs Lisp string. We've already discovered that it's not gracefully handling double-quotes. We need to make sure that we can correctly synchronize changes to text that contain unusual characters properly. That includes quotes, newlines, null characters, control characters, and stuff out of the ASCII range.

Acceptance Criteria

  • emacs-to-emacs synchronization successfully handles both inserts and deletes for the the following classes of characters:
    • quotes
    • backslashes
    • newlines
    • null characters
    • control characters
    • characters above 128
    • characters above 256
