current working directory must be local (or made to look to the OS as if
it were local). Period. Netrw, which allows reading and writing files
and directories over a number of network protocols, is a set of scripts
written in the same programming language as your vimrc, and indeed it is
"tacked on top" of the Vim C core. The advantage is that, if a bug is
found in netrw, you can cure it by upgrading the scripts, without the
need to recompile Vim.

people have mediocrity thrust upon them.
