I voted the post down for the general reason of "what's
the point?" In this case, your post was too brief
for me to get a 'point' out of it. I want a motive.
- What's the context? Why should we care that you
want this module? It might be nice (although I
think scp would be more useful), but
- Why are you telling us? Who is the intended
recipient of this message?
- Someone who could would write this module?
I expect most people write modules when they
need them, so it's unlikely you'll get a module
- Someone who agrees with you that it would
be nice, but can make no contribution toward
realizing that goal? Well, what's the point of
that? I would understand the point of a manisfesto
intended to make others agree with you, but
this is just a statement. It's like walking up
to someone on the street and saying, "World
peace would be nice." The person will probably
nod and agree, and once alone wonder why you
bothered to tell her/him so.
There you have it. I voted it down because it wasn't
clear to me what purpose it served, even after asking
a few other people. I will probably make fewer -- votes
of this type in the future because I originally started
making them because of the posting bonus, when it was
fairly safe to assume posts you couldn't see a point
to existed just to give their owner a little exp.
As to whether such a module exists, I have no idea as
it's not something I've ever looked for.
I have no problem with explaining my votes, but I prefer
to wait for a request to do so. Some people want to hear
it and some people don't.
Ps. osfameron, ssh is 'secure shell client', which
provides encrypted communication between two hosts
over an insecure network. scp ('secure copy') allows
encrypted data transfer.
