And if you're a vim user, vim scp://remote//path/to/file

But really, you want a revision control system. My preference is darcs, 
here's an example of the most common commands:

server:~/foo$ darcs initialize; darcs add *; darcs record
client:~$ darcs get server:foo
client:~$ vim foo.c
client:~$ darcs record; darcs push
server:~$ vim foo.c; darcs record
client:~$ darcs pull
