Thanks for your answer Brian!
So do you think it's still worth trying to add it to gFTP? If you spawn
a command like "ssh server_address ls" to list a dir, and open a new ssh
connection like that each time the user wants to list a new dir, you
won't have to deal with shell prompts, right? (the connectionn would be
closed right after the results would be displayed)
I used to use WinSCP2 under Windows, which did exactly this, and it was
quite convenient...
