I'm confused. Wouldn't using SVN to sync different work stations result in more check-ins? It would also require you to check in things that were only have finished. If I was working on something and then had to switch computers, I'd have to check in my half-completed code, move computers, and then pull down the update on the other computer. Working off of a remote machine with SFTP, all I have to do is save the file, move computers, and then open it back up on the new computer. I don't check it into SVN until it's ready.

I think you're confused at how we're using SFTP. We're not all working on the same set of code. We each have our own dev environment—our own working copy of the code—which we check in and our of the repo. SFTP is only how we access our files—remote instead of local drive. All of the standard procedures and best-practices for development are the same (version control, testing, deployment, staging, etc). Literally, the only difference is that the code is on a remote machine instead of your local machine.
