would it be possible to hack together a restricted shell that would
allow scp or sftp to work, without full giving users a full-fledged
shell? i would be very hesitant to send my password over ftp, since
the route is 100% open to sniffing for at least a few hops. other
developers may be more confident in their networks' privacy, but
usually such confidence is overconfidence, so it would probably be
best not to encourage (or even allow) use of ftp.
