summary: Ability to explicitly select SCP/SFTP backend in PSCP
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

It would sometimes be useful for users to be able to explicitly select the backend that PSCP uses, with command-line options -scp and -sftp.

As a side effect, -sftp could easily make PSCP look harder for an SFTP server, in the same way that PSFTP does currently. (But the only reason it can't always do this is a grotty implementation detail which will be swept away come the revolution.)

Audit trail for this wish.
