C++, can we develop collaborative software tools?

Collaborative tools are being developed at a pace
that outstrips the willingness of scientists to
collaborate.  C++ seems to have had very little to
do with it.

Almost by definition the most vital data collected
in a research environment will not be in a
standard format.  The research is often intended
to discover the very taxonomy that would allow the
programmer to neatly define objects in the domain
of the program.
