Moving projects between multiple computers with FCP X. Is it possible?

Hi All

I run a editing lab at a university art department and we are considering what to do with our editing software. I have been doing some research on FCP X and one of our faculty linked Walter Biscardi's article on the Creative Cow Magazine.

One particular part caught my attention.

Cannot collaborate with other editors. You can't simply hand off a project file to another editor who has the same media like you could with previous versions of FCP. All of your project organization is now globally contained in the application rather than in your project file. You would literally have to give that other editor your computer to open your project with all of your organization.

Is this still the case? Has Apple updated FCP X to allow working on multiple machines? This would be a big issue for us as currently students will work on FCP7 in the classroom and then copy their projects and media to an external HD and move to the editing lab after class ends. If you can't move between multiple computers FCP X would be real problem.

Any info on this issue or whether there are simple work-arounds would be extremely helpful.
