I used to use vi for editing config files, until I discovered Kai Grossjohann's tramp: sort of like ange-ftp or efs, except that it can transfer files via ftp, scp, sftp, telnet, rsh, raw shell (using uudecode, shell script, or a perl program transferred across the line), over a su (!), and even tunnelled across multiple-hop connections (`I have to ssh in there and then telnet there and then su to *that* user before I can edit anything').
So now I can edit everything, no matter who owns it, in the same editor.
