Implement SFTP Support in the FTP Package Deployment Step Template
The FTP deployment step supports FTP and FTPS but not SFTP. Adding this would let Octopus users securely deploy to a much broader range of systems (i.e. Unix-y ones instead of Windows).

We have successfully disbanded FTP internally because of the hassle it gives network admins, and the many combinations and thus problems in interpreting the non-protocol it is. We have named it 'File Transfer Problems' internally. See http://mywiki.wooledge.org/FtpMustDie for specific details. We've had problems with almost all of the mentioned problems in some sort.
I take it must be trivial to take sftp functionality from other projects and implement them, or to roll your own.
We are considering Octopus, and SFTP (not FTPS) is a must for us, please implement.

Piling on: SFTP is a hell of a lot easier to get through firewalls than FTPS, and it interoperates better with a lot of inexpensive hosting and CDN solutions.
