The other nice things about tramp (which no doubt Quinn failed to
mention because it is so easy to take for granted) is that when you
use emacs' built-in grep and compile commands, it knows to run them on
the remote machine. So you get the benefits of remote editing without
having to open up a terminal window for common tasks. It's seamless
when using ssh/scp. (those features won't work if you don't have a
shell on the remote host)

Plus tramp is included with standard Emacs distribution.
