[OS X TeX] Functionality for collaborative work in TeXShop?

I was just asked by a colleague -- TeXShop convert from a few months  
ago -- whether there is in TeXShop a functionality for marking  
changes in a document written collaboratively by several persons, à  
la Word, namely by (assuming I understood correctly, given I don't  
use Word myself for writing):

- Putting in different colors pieces of text written or modified by  
different persons.

- Putting delete bars through deleted text.

I imagine this is not a job for a front-end like TeXShop, and that  
the functionality has instead to be looked for in a dedicated LaTeX  
package. I mentioned the changebar package, but it doesn't do all the  
things my colleague is willing to do.

Has anybody here experience with a more sophisticated solution?  
(Versioning systems like CVS or subversion aside, which would be  
considered overkill and too technical for the problem at hand -- and  
for me as well.)
