Yeah, having learned system/network administration on NFS-heavy networks, I've learned
to avoid it whenever possible, and ssh is a great protocol for that. Thus sftp://. :-)
sftp:// and fish:// are different. fish:// uses shell commands, while sftp:// uses sshd's sftp
subsystem extension (there's a switch for it in the OpenSSHd config file). sftp is
noticably faster, but slightly less well-supported across different ssh servers.
I definitely intend to do some more with sshfs soon.
