Hi, I wasn't aware that fedora has been shipping the -m override.

I agree that it certainly makes sense to be able to override the
permissions server-side.

So, I'd second to merge the force-permission -m option.

Though, proper umask handling at the target side is by no means a
negligible problem, I think.

As far as I know SFTP is the only remote filesystem (access) that
transfers and creates files without proper use of the umask in effect
at their target location.

Already created a separate issue to fix the broken default behavior:

(mangle) secure/useful file permissions)
