As an example of where this does not work, I must use Citrix software to
connect the my server.  Unfortunately, I do not have direct ssh access.

Also, does this transfer the file to a local temporary directory?  If
the edited files are large/manifold, this could be a problem.

(Citrix is mandated by my employer, and its unlikely they will be
moved to change. I'm grateful that I can access free software albeit via
this proprietary mechanism.)
