I want to know are there any plans on the sftp client (not server)

Previously I was using ssh-2.4 packages (non-commercial) and they have
sftp client.

And when I've moved to openssh I found that openssh sftp client
functionality is more poor then ordinary ftp client have!

Here is some of the features I think, developers must concentrate on:

1.   Include support for wildcards ('get opens*' for example)
1.1 If the wirlcards with "get" cannot be done, then at least mget should be
     included (with wildcards support)
2. TAB competes the filename/s (as it is done in shell)
3. "ls" should normally do a short list, and if user want a long list, then
"ls -l"
     must do that
4. Download status (to control the progress of the transfer)
