In a world where FTP has finally been turned off by most ISPs, Wordpress allegedly supports SSH2 for upgrades instead, using FS_METHOD ssh2. However it fails to work in any real-world scenario because it assumes the filesystem paths on the remote host are the same as on the local filesystem.
This obviously fails with pretty much any ISP on earth as the users are chroot()ed, so a directory that was once perhaps /home/david/www.davidc.net would in fact be just /www.davidc.net when accessed over SFTP.
