After thinking a little bit more, have a perl daemon to monitor inboxes and move it the common queue dir is the best solution(your 2nd idea). This requires minimal customization on ssh-side and is very clean....

If you are going to use Perl, then consider using the Net::SFTP::Server
module from CPAN. It implements an SFTP server in Perl and can be easily
extended to perform some action after every put action.
