This can make editing slow because Vim must peridocially write the swap file over the network. 'backupdir' and 'undodir' are less important as they only affect file write times. See https://groups.google.com/d/topic/vim_use/1ZrWkBj6DKI/discussion for setting 'directory' differently for different file locations.
