SFTP Status Bar..

For large files the bar stops at the second * and then does not update
until the transfer is complete (put).

Also, I did "put *"; * matched, among other things, a directory, and
sftp exited (not cored).

It would be nice if the protocol had a find-style protocol command.

It would also be nice if the client could copy entire filsystem

It would also be nice if the protocol supported rdiff-style ops (i.e.,
get rsync signature for a remote file, get delta for a remote file given
a local file's rsync signature, patch a file with an rsync patch file).

Then we could have a clean replacement for rsync :)

The protocol wishlist belongs at the IETF SECSH WG, I know.
