I should know better than to get involved with a budding flame war
like this'un. What, "extended functionality," are you referring to,
besides a graphical user interface?
Unfortunately, setting the executable permission on a remote file
is considered a security hole. I'd RTFM the ssh(d|-config|<whatever>)
man page to find out if that can be configured. Unfortunately,
I don't have the ssh server documentation here at the moment.
In terms of megabytes, the majority of my file transfers happen by
shell scripts. I tend to use rsync, though not with ssh on the other
end. It works great for mirroring.
