#904 Add SCP convenience integration

Next Release

First, love the app, thanks so much!

Request: SCP Integration

Ok so this is a little bit of a lazy request but, I have seen it in other terminal apps and it is handy. Integration of SCP such that one can say select and right click a file name onscreen and select to push down or pull down using the same credentials or keyfile used to establish the SSH connection. Of course one would be prompted for password as always when applicable.

Of course all this can be done by typing a command BUT, sometime it is rather inconvenient.

Example: I log into most of my servers using a keyfile, once on the server I usually do NOT have access from the remote machine back to my local machine. So if I am already in the right folder and listing a file, it would be easier to ask iTerm to initiate the SCP from my local machine without having to open a new local terminal window. Of course if actually adding the feature, it would seem logical to also provide the option for the remote server to "push" the file down for when this might be preferable...why....who knows :-)
