Well that wold be a huge security hole, you would be running a lisp
process anyone can connect to. You should use SSH forwarding if you
want to connect to a remote swank.
ssh -L 4005:localhost:4005 my-webserver.com

Well - now you have a huge security hole on that server ...

Well without an NFS mount you can do it by using tramp for GNU Emacs
or XEmacs, it should allow you editing files on a remote machine that
you have ssh access to.
You should set proper:
So they would convert from tramp filename to the slime relative
filename and back.
