Sorry for the slow reply here; I keep getting sidetracked.

My big problem is just one of speed. I've been able to work around some of it
by changing my editor config (moving vim's swap file to a local dir made the
biggest difference), but there is still an annoying noticeable lag when
reading and writing the file.
I often edit files in a rapid way: make a small change, save, recompile+run
or refresh the page if a web app - I want to see the changes as instantly
The sshfs lag isn't much, but it adds up quickly when doing several
small changes. I find that if any given task takes hours, I can be very
patient, but if it takes milliseconds, I get annoyed easily!

I haven't encountered that, but I also work from my desktop. (Even when
on my laptop, I tend to run most programs remotely from the desktop - this
is one of the driving forces behind my "D Windowing System" project described
in the other thread. (That, and I just want an easy, simple API for my common
tasks in D - kill two birds with one stone, I figure.)
