I'm finding this problem a bit hard to explain in a few words, and
aren't having much luck with search engines finding an answer.

I work onsite about half the time and offsite the other half.  Some
nights, I'll be onsite, be half way through a complex set of changes,
have heaps of modified files, and have to go home.

The next morning, I want to pick up from where I left off, but this time
from home.  I can't commit the stuff at work (at least to the head
branch), because it's not stable enough (may not even build).

I'm currently using a shell script cludge that scp's the modified and
new files over to my home PC, and then I have to remember to do the
oposite before going back onsite.

I never had this problem before, I've been using ssh and vi for years,
but now I'm addicted to an IDE (idea), so I've gotta find a better
solution.  I'm currently considering sshfs, but the performance won't be

I assume many of you have this same problem, how do you deal with it?
I'm also considering using a different VCS system in conjunction with
