--- Comment #1 from Will B <will.brokenbourgh2877 at gmail.com> ---
I would also like to request this.  I understand the implications on
Unix-like systems, but for Windows this is a major time-waster.  It
took about 15 minutes too long to do a simple scp using an id file on
Windows.  I had to find and implement the Windows file security
settings that would be acceptable to OpenSSH -- for *one* file -- then
actually get on with the task of performing the scp.

Maybe to some this is a minor thing, but when time is money, and
Microsoft is using your project, this should definitely be either
bypassed or a setting provided.  Without cygwin or msys, you cannot
simply issue chmod 600 * on Windows and everything is then okay.

Thanks! :-)
