not for me.
(gedit-2.8.0 here)

yes, you can OPEN the file, but you can not WRITE to the file.
and imho "that's able to edit a remote file directly", by editing he
means also saving the changes.

seems that gedit only uses gnome-vfs to read, not to write.
the only app that is able to write to remote locations for now is

it's a shame that this was not a priority for gnome devels to make the
base applications
able to write to remote locations.
the simplest kde editor is able to do it btw.
