But that's the part that works already.  It's SSH-2.4.0 client scp to
OpenSSH server that doesn't work (and which needs sftp server-side

(I don't really understand why rcp over ssh wasn't sufficient and why
SSH-2.4.0 now uses the sftp gunge to implement scp, but perhaps there's
a reasonable reason....)
