Re: [gftp] a new svn repo with recent updates

Many thanks Qianqian!

I haven't confirmed it recently, but I vaguely remember
that gftp (SSH2) is much slower than say scp or
copying via an sshfs-fuse mounted file system.
If this is still true (I'll check it) a long term
enhancement request would be to fix this.
