yes - thats a great feature of the ssh client. I used it quite often when i was too lazy to do vpn configs for some nets behind router - just running sshd with correct restriction on the gateway will save you alot of time (at least saved me, cause i am not admin :). But for some time I am just linking some remote ports on the localhost:
ssh -L 8080:localhost:80 someuser@somehost
Its quite usefull too if you have remote server behind router with access only to ssh port.
About the article - very usefull - thought about "-f" option and how nice its usage is

Yes, local port forwarding is awesome. I am going to describe it in more detail in my definitive guide to ssh port forwarding.
