remote edits / tramp.

I've been doing development on a couple of machines, moving git&darcs
archives around, but it is really too much of a hassle.  I'd like to
switch to something more convenient.

I tried tramp mode before, but it has a couple of annoying bits that
interfere with work flow.  Most prominent one is autosave, which
freezes until connection is finished.  Maybe switch that off?

Or put backups in a separate directory:

The security bits mentioned there is not an issue, since I'm not
editing any root-owned files in a user emacs session.

(setq tramp-auto-save-directory "~/emacs/backup/")

Cool feature: run M-x shell in a dired tramp dir, and it will start a
remote shell with working tab completion.

After that, M-x shell will start remote shell.
