I looked through the FAQ and archive and haven't seen an mention of 
this.  Has it been considered making the sftp logging patch maintain by 
Michael Martinez at a part of the main 
stream sftp-server?  Being able to configure the default umask for sftp 
users who don't run a shell, and providing ftp level logging 
functionality typically available in other ftp servers to be important 
security features that openssh should provide by default.  Is there any 
history on this that I'm not aware of?
