I know that this is not exactly what you're after, but still... If you
want to edit files with Emacs via an ssh connection, have a look at
TRAMP. From the intro to the manual:
"After the installation of TRAMP into your GNU Emacs, you will be able
to access files on remote machines as though they were local. Access
to the remote file system for editing files, version control, and
`dired' are transparently enabled."
