Open model from SharePoint (#342)

We use a SharePoint document library to stroe our SWIM documents. To edit a document, I first need to download a local copy, edit the local copy, and then manually upload it back to the document library.

It would be great if I could just open the document from SharePoint, just like I can with office documents. SWIM should be able to read documents directly from a document library, and should offer checkin / checkout commands.
