for remote CDT, the RDT component of the PTP project should be your first station to look at:
EFS is in fact a low-level API which allows the normal Eclipse WOrkspace to refer to remote files (File > New : Advanced : Link to folder in file system : choose EFS Provider). For more info see
The biggest problem of EFS is that when your Eclipse Workspace needs a refresh, a lot of data traffic occurs. This will only work well when your remote system is reasonably near without long latency / turnaround time.
Another problem of the RSE EFS implementation is that it requires some highlevel (UI) components to do the lowlevel (non-UI) work. Because of that, a plain remote project won't open on restart - you always have to link remote files.
None the less, the RSE EFS provider is being used a lot, for instance Zend Studio for PHP is a commercial IDE that uses it a lot. I've heard also the DLTK people use it. Aptana, on the other hand, did their own non-RSE EFS implementation on top of a different SSH library - but it's available in Open Source too (http://aptana.com).
Hope this helps - if it did, please consider updating the TM FAQ on the Wiki such that others can learn about these things too.
