Trying to send this message across for the third time - wonder why the 
spam score keeps exceeding the treshold

I didnt quite get you there - how does a web interface use sftp? Java 
applets or something?

Regarding file upload/download, I agree with you that there should be a 
better way. Alternatives that I can think of which would be:

1) WebDAV
apache supports webdav, and MSIE has it built in, though probably 
wouldnt work as effortlessly on non windows machines . there is also a 
FF windows only addin
I like this approach as it allows single/multiple file drag and drop.

2) Using the PUT method.
This was meant to be the way for placing files on the server using the 
HTTP protocol. unfortunately i think it didnt achieve critical mass 
amongst web users and slowly fell into disuse. apache dosent support 
except through a script though there is a mod_put available here - and i doubt 
any web browser supports it.

3) Use scripts on the server side - simple ones like the one i sent or 
more complex ones like what picasa uses.

one of the biggest problems i face with uploads is that typically file 
transfers cannot be resumed over HTTP. dont know if dav allows resume 
and if clients support it.
