I’ve been playing with Fuse SSHFS, which allows a normal user to mount a remote SFTP site as a local folder. I’ve just opened a template on my remote webserver using Gedit on my laptop – clicking save changed the site.

I guess it’s not hugely different from Samba or NFS, but it’s kinda extra cool as the encryption allows you to use it over the WAN not just the LAN, and it’s more “realtime” than SCP or SFTP.
