Interesting, but not the same category of things as WinSCP.  It doesn't 
do what you (seem to) think it does.

gFTP front-ends to Brian Wellington's sftp-protocol client, to 
reach Wellington's sftp-protocol server on the far end.  Despite the
naming coincidence, this "sftp" is _not_ the same protocol as the sftp2
protocol originated by Tatu Ylönen's SSH2 suite.

And, of course, hardly anyone runs Wellington's sftp-server binary.

Cheers,             "I used to be on the border of insanity.  However, due 
Rick Moen           to pressing political concerns, I recently had to invade."
