Dude -

This is some good stuff. Quick, easy and native to the user's interface, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Saving the password would be cool for a corporate install. This would make using the drive trivial for regular users.

(An admin user, it's perfect. LOVE IT!)

I'm glad you like Swish!

Unfortuntely, saving the SSH password is a very bad idea; after all, the whole point of SSH is security. More than that, it isn't even possible the way most SSH servers are configured nowadays (see #124 for more about that).

The proper way to do this is to use public-key authentication but Swish doesn't support this ... yet. I hope it will soon!
