the possibility to "browse" remote computers via ssh/scp exists as an addon to 
KDE, using the fish:// protocol (no kidding), see
works fine for me in konqueror.

also, the program lftp let's you open fish://user@host URLs and use the usual 
ftp-like commands with them - so it might be possible to add that feature to
