lftp is an ftp client that supports many protocols: ftp, ftps, http, 
https, hftp, fish and file. lftp also has readline support (ie 
tab-completion and history like bash and ncftp). Using lftp with the 
fish protocol makes it a convenient substitute for sftp.

Known issues:

-When using the fish protocol, lftp causes a segfault when copying a 
file to the host (put operation). Smaller files (<6k) will work OK. But 
anything larger causes a segfault for me.

-lftp won't store the file time from the server. (reported by: Frédéric 
L. W. Meunier).
