I've seen this question coming up before, and I'm interested in this as well. 
It really seems to me that the solutions you mentioned are the only "mature" 
ways for linux-to-linux filesharing. 

I also know of the lufs utilities, which can mount a remote filesystem via ssh 
or ftp. In my experience ssh works well, but lufs is described as 
experimental quality in the readme, so obviously one should not rely on it. 

Are there really no other reliable solutions? I hope I missed something too...
