Of course, for the ftp lovers, there is sftp which also works through sshd,
but presents an ftp-like interface to the user:

$ sftp localhost
Connecting to localhost...
mgogala@localhost's password:
sftp> cd tmp
sftp> lcd /tmp
sftp> mget *.php
Fetching /home/mgogala/tmp/figure3.php to figure3.php
/home/mgogala/tmp/figure3.php                 100% 1078     1.1KB/s   00:00
Fetching /home/mgogala/tmp/pdo_test.php to pdo_test.php
/home/mgogala/tmp/pdo_test.php                100% 1049     1.0KB/s   00:00
Fetching /home/mgogala/tmp/pdo_test1.php to pdo_test1.php
/home/mgogala/tmp/pdo_test1.php               100%  768     0.8KB/s   00:00
sftp> bye

Of course, there are some differences. For instance, the "prompt" command is 
not recognized. Nevertheless, all true faithful will use sftp and ssh instead 
of ftp, telnet and rsh.
