Not doable for IDEA, I think. IDEA uses the filesystem constantly, not just at opening time. Also, after using IDEA a while you'll find yourself opening and closing files A LOT. Doing that over FTP (or any other remote fs) wouldn't be feasible, I think.

I was using IDEA for a while and still do, obviously I’m not suggesting using remote file system for a local cache. Currently I’m using IDEA with dynamic Clear Case (I’m not sure it tells something to you but it is a remote file system from NT to UNIX via hummingbird NFS and file on UNIX is served by the clear case source control). The current process works quite well from the performance point of view and apparently more complicated then FTP.

Well, FTP is sure way slower than NFS for this kind of thing. You're using NFS the way it was projected to: as a remote filesystem. FTP was conceived just as a transfer protocol, not as a filesystem.

Well, I'll leave other people to comment on now, but I don't think a remote FTP filesystem is feasible for storing a project source code.
