|'Ideal' Workflow for PDT with Remote Xdebug-ging, TM/RSE & Version Control ? [message #526426]

I'm starting to build/deploy and Eclipse-based work environment across local development and remote deployment.
Our setup is fairly straightforward:
Remote web server
PHP 53 via mod_fcgid, with XDebug
accessible via 'anything' SSH pubkey auth'd (ssh, sftp, fuse-ssh, etc).
Source in Bzr repositories
Eclipse 35 'Galileo' PDT w/ TM (Target Management) & RSE (Remote System Explorer)
local Apache2, PHP53, Xdebug, Bzr, etc -- if/as required
To date, our workflow has been to simply checkout remote source to the local workstations, hack/edit in text editors, then push back to the server -- using Bzr, fwiw. Debugging was done 'manually' via cmd line XDebug in shell sessions (over SSH) at the server itself.
With the introduction of Eclipse/PDT we've "inherited" more flxibility -- and complexity:
(1) we can access the remote server via ssh thru Eclipse, locally via Eclipse to a local fuse+ssh mount, &/or acccess via RCS (bzr) @ filesystem cmd line, &/or via the Eclipse plugin.
(2) we can have project files remain on the remote server, &/or RCS-pull (or simply sync) to local project stores
(3) we can debug fully-remotely, &/or cross-debug via a local apache/php/xdebug install
I.e., endless possibilities ...
I *think* our ideal workflow is:
(1) remote server as RCS repository server
(2) remote server as the only/authoritative Apache/Debug server -- i.e., all live-site debugging occurs only at the server
(3) local access to remote files via SSH-pubkey-auth only, working on local, RCS checked-out stores -- via Eclipse plugin (bzr, e.g.; makes little difference ...) -- serving as local Eclipse project files.
My questions are:
(A) Does this approach make sense, or is it fundamentally challenged/flawed?
(B) Is there a step-by-step tutorial for a process similar to this available? In particular: Galileo/PDT + TM/RSE + Remote XDebug-ging & Local Eclipse PRoject/Workspace-integrated version control ...
Thanks for any comments!
