I really don't appreciate this kind of name reuse - sftp is a protocol 
registered by the IETF (tcp/115). It was rather silly of JCraft to use
that name for their scp implementation. Let's do better than them and
have JavaScpDeployer (and possibly ExternalScpDeployer, if we want to
keep it for whatever reasons).
