I'm not entirely familiar with this work, though I did notice a private
library in OpenSSH with that name. Is the latter meant to be an
embryonic version?

Do you know what the time frame for libssh is? If its completion is a
long way off, it might still be best to include my work, at least as an
intermediary. Also, do you know whether the library will include direct
support for the sftp protocol? If not, then the code I wrote can be used
with little modification.

I certainly agree that it would be better not to fork an instance of
ssh, since doing so complicates error reporting mechanisms. Currently,
however, the sftp client included in OpenSSH works in this manner, so
there appears to be no better option at present.
