Looks like someone sent me the real answer (enclosed).

I'll look for it. I'm a little worried it won't do what I want, though: I
need to do remote compilation and debugging. When there's an error, I want
C-x-` to take me to the correct place in the remote file. I need to be able
to CVS checkout, etc... though I guess I could edit those files on my local
machine if they'll get moved transparently.

Not an option for me.
