A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
I find one of the major shortcoming of OpenSSH sftp implementation is lack of logging.
I believe OpenSSH devs say that since you can login via ssh and copy paste data it would not guarantee completes and provide false sense of security.
But I would like an option for running sftp only with nice logs, but as far as I can tell there really isn't any widely deployed sftp only server for linux.
Who still uses FTP, for anything?

Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server -l INFO -f AUTHPRIV
in your sshd_config. That will be fairly verbose (logging e.g. what directories are opened to find a file list) but will also log file transfers.
