Yes, that is just what I wanted!  It's like Tramp in the filesystem. 
Installation went pretty easily, and performance is pretty decent.  It
doesn't seem to deal with group ownership very well, which is a real
shame (everything that's not owned by you is owned by "bin", and group
ownership is pretty much ignored).  But I can work around that.  This is
like the HURD filesystem ideas, only on Linux.  I'm psyched.
