Two questions on PyDev for Eclipse

for 2: as far as I know, eclipse must have 'local', or at least 
'emulated' local access, so, if you have samba access, it should do what 
you want.

for 1... I use it a LOT without any problems for some really big 
projects ( with about 2.000 python modules -- not counting the python 
installation) -- but as I also develop it, so, I may be kind of 
impartial ;-)
