Yeah, it is fairly easy to use but it's still annoying to be doing it.
In reality what I want is to edit the remote files directly.  I don't
want to be copying back/forth.  It can't really be automated either,
since I'm not doing the same task over and over.

No, they don't.  Pretty much the only thing allowed is ssh/sftp.

I want my remote home directory (available just by ssh) to be
transparently available from a local directory :P

  Thanks very much,
