Be careful with this. A co-worker has tried this method and we saw a  
few cases where SSHfs gave us an older (cached?) version of a file  
and even truncated the last 30% or so of a file on one occasion.  
(Thankfully, we could just "svn revert" it.) Which brings me to the  
other drawback: you can't do many svn operations on a working copy  
that's mounted via SSHfs. Also, projects on remote filesystems can be  
unusably slow.

I posted [a couple of commands][1] a while back that make it a little  
easier to work locally and sync with a remote machine. I'll most  
likely clean them up and make a bundle soon.
