suggestion: use phpseclib, a pure PHP SFTP implementation

The PECL ssh2 extension is notoriously difficult to install and on a lot of web hosts you're not going to be able to install extensions anyway. I think you should use phpseclib, a pure PHP SFTP implementation.

All phpseclib requires is that the preg_* functions be available (I've never seen a web server where they weren't although it is possible to disable them, in theory, with a flag when compiling PHP) and that fsockopen work.
