If Qt removes QFTP, could Qt provide a "scp" implementation? Maybe regardless of QFTP, scp would still be a "Good Thing(tm)".
Ideally, this would be transparently supported in QUrls too: image.source = "scp://server/file.png"
I can't seem to find a consolidated list of url schemes that Qt supports? QNAM::supportedSchemes gives: ("ftp", "file", "qrc", "http", "https", "data")
