Feature request: scp not overwriting existing files

I would like to have an option to have scp refrain from overwriting
target files if they already exist. Default behavior needs to be
unchanged to maintain compatibility, but an option to stop scp from
clobbering existing files would definetely be nice. If a file cannot
be written, scp should have another option to continue with the next
file instead of aborting.
