Questions about remote editing via emacs

Hi, I have questions about editing files on remote systems while
staying within the currently-open emacs session (i.e. moving closer to
an emacs desktop).

Frequently I have to ssh to a server and muck around with files.  In
this situation EFS works fine and I am able to edit the files - no
problem.

However, occasionally these files are protected by the following
means: 
        -  The need to access them as root via  sudo 
        -  The need to have CVS commands (RCS,etc) entered as a prefix.
           Before the edit
        -  OR they are run with a wrapper on them.  

A typical example  would be:

        sudo /foo/bin/editimportantfile.pl

So, if i use 'ssh' from within emacs to go to the server where this
script lives and execute the program, it pulls from $EDITOR and tries
to put me in another emacs session there.

So would it be possible to tell it to "open a session back on the
already open session on my other machine?"

Likewise, if I use "shell" and then login to the other box I find
myself similarly stymied.

Is there any way around this?

Thanks,


Steven
