So fish works in some, sftp in other situations. Is there a way we can find out 
automatically, and then do the right thing in the background?

Another thing, on my machine, the fish:// slave doesn't work, logging in and listing 
works, but when I want to copy a file to the remote machine, it says "Connection to 
host miro is broken". SFTP works fine. Anybody else experiencing this?
