That looks like it could be especially useful on Windows.  On linux,
the ssh/scp clients are always there and bash does remote filename
completions for hosts in your ~/.ssh/config file for which you have
keys enabled.  But I'd imagine having that kind of support out of the
box for windows would be great, where I recall having to hunt for
decent SSH support.

And even on unix, the ability to use the scripting power of ipython
through a remote host, and especially to link local activity with
remote files, could be great.
