I totally agree.
 From tiny projects to massive projects, I find that I just can't  
stand the slowness of developing on a remote system.
Even if there's no way of previewing what I'm developing locally.

Here's my most recent in depth look into workflows.

I don't recommend committing something to subversion just to get it  
uploaded to a dev server for testing.

I do recommend using Transmit with DockSend and the Transmit bundle  
for TextMate.
	Set it up properly and you can upload with a single action from  
inside textmate.
