You can already implement this yourself. Write a command "Sync to  
server" and one "Sync from server" that uses rsync to sync the  
project document root to/from the server, with the server defined in  
project-level environment variables. Then you can just create a new  
project, set the env vars, and save the project, and from then on  
simply open the project and sync from server, do whatever work you  
want, then sync back to server.
