That's *exactly* what it's being used for over here- automated scp of
files, neatly using ssh keys and all. Also, for Eclipse, it's used to
wrap cvs/svn access with ssh.
So far, I'm somewhat counter-intuitively excited to see it working- I
guess I'm trying to shake the nagging feeling from sad-sack
experiences with vendor-supplied ssh, (ancient closed-source ssh V1
junk, was in PDU's... worst case scenario for junky software).
This ssh implementation is at least open, (BSD Licensed even), and
seems commonly/heavily used used?
