sshfs: where were you all along :)

Did you know that you could mount a remote directory (any directory accessible to you) through an ssh command? I was reading 16 ultimate ssh hacks by Carla Schroder and found out this little piece of heaven. The command is sshfs. You use it in the following way:

sshfs USER@SERVER:REMOTEDIR LOCALMOUNTPOINT

There are also some really cool comments on slashdot about further ssh candy.
