Editing of source files works quite nicely over ssh given a capable
$ emacs /dwmw2 at pentafluge.infradead.org:/home/dwmw2/public_html/foo.html &
And obviously SSH is clever enough that that kind of trick even works
for hosts within private networks, because you can play tricks with
ProxyCommand to make 'ssh somehost.company.internal' entirely
Mostly I just use the above trick with emacs, and rsync -- which again
works over SSH so it's easy to get to/from company-internal machines.
