If it's a web site you want to edit, you can enable a remote  
directory for WebDAV, then mount it with the Finder. You can then  
open any web site file as if it were local.

Another approach that I've seen in other programs is an inverse of  
what you suggest. Instead of the remote site pushing a file to the  
client, the client (i.e. the text editor) pulls the file from the  
server using SFTP. Although this doesn't allow a seamless "mate"  
command from the remote server's shell, it works with existing, well- 
known protocols and should be more reliable than a custom script.

Other text editors, such as jEdit and BBEdit, already support SFTP,  
so hopefully TextMate will also support it in the near future.
