One speedup for this sort of thing is to try "fsh", which is a hacked
python wrapper that maintains a single ssh connection and reuses it.
This can greatly speed up remote connections, since it can take a long
time to build the connection.

I started using this with a build system (that I built) that makes
multiple connections via CVS over ssh, and it can nicely speed things
up. I use password-less certificates because of how often it goes to the
repository, but still it might be useful.

Just a thought,
