I never bother with X-forwarding for development work, it is too slow I
agree. I use Konqueror to connect as an FTP client, as it works really
well as a file manager with the split screen views it has. From there, I
can manage most of my files as I wish over sftp as if they were local.
The only thing I can't do it edit the graphics files with Gimp, as that
doesn't use KDE's kioslaves :(
