I have MovableType running locally on my iBook, configured for my public server, blogging to localhost and rsyncing the content on up to my public server when something changes. I've turned off the comments feature since I don't run MT on my public server, but I could just as well have left it on locally and had my public server MT. All you're doing manually with search-and-replace can be circumvented by configuring MT for your public server. And the uploading is handled nicely by rsynch (over SSH or FTP if you like).
