summary: Perhaps PSCP should permit multiple remote sources
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

PSCP currently has no local way of specifying multiple remote files explicitly (rather than with wildcards). (If it's using the SCP backend, you may be able to use remote, unsafe, wildcards or shell constructs.)

i.e. you can't do

pscp server:file1 server:file2 server:another_file localdir

In order for this syntax to be more useful than multiple separate invocations of PSCP, we'd have to be slightly clever to group requests to the same server and avoid multiple sessions/re-authentications.

(Or perhaps we could add brace expansion to the set of local "wildcards" we support, for the SFTP backend at least.)

Audit trail for this wish.
