I don't know of anyone having done this, but I guess I'm a little fuzzy on
why you'd want to do this in the first place?  Why not just a normal
transfer protocol, like FTP, FTPS, SFTP, SCP, etc., and find some way or
another to have the user launch that in a user-friendly way?  I guess I'm
not understanding what you gain in doing something like this with Guacamole?
