Add SFTP/SCP as a publish method for web projects

SFTP/SCP is not available as a publish method for web projects. This means that you have to publish to a local directory and then copy the files to the remote server via an external SFTP/SCP tool if you server or hosting provider uses that protocol, which is cumbersome.

It would be more convenient to have the option built-in, since a lot of system admins are moving to SFTP/SCP for security purposes.

        I'd like to see it as an option for setting your project source location.. I work on my projects remotely and would like to be able to work on project files directly through SFTP like many free text editors these days offer...
