           Summary: [WISHLIST]  sftpfs?
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: -current
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: sftp
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org

Would it be possible to look into the creation of an filesystem based on the
sftp client/server?

1) For paranoid networks where portblocking is enabled on everything but http,
sftp, and ssh, it would be ideal for sharing files.
2) For those wishing to create a simple means of VPN, an sftpfs would provide an
ideal secure p2p file sharing method.
3) Samba was able to create a filesystem on top of a client/server architecture,
so the concept doesn't seem too unreasonable.

Any comments?
