Yep, I also faced the same problem; especially when hacking on a script locally and forget the changed file to upload. This one always lets me shout and curse ;-)
I've taught myself to use CVS for almost everything. How many times this has saved my butt I can't tell you, but it's been a lot! Unfortunately, this does not help you with the problem I sketched above.

It sleeps normally for 15 seconds, peeks wheter the file has been modified, and if so, uploads it to its remote place. It saves me a lot of time, that I can assure you... (it is also never been so quite in my home :-)
