About a year ago I promised Mark Finlay that I would work on the
ssh-method with him.  I worked on it but I lost the code.  I had some
time at work so I patched together some code.

Plus, it was there to work on.  KDE has a ssh method, why shouldn't
GNOME?  I agree on the fact that scp is better, but ssh is included and
so why not make it better?
