Right, all this conversation seemed to be ignoring that there are two
differemt protocols: SSH and SFTP.

Also, googling for "xattr openssh" reveals that a similar discussion
already happened several years ago on the sshfs mailing list and that a
patch implementing an extension for xattr was submitted to the OpenSSH
bug tracker. It has not been accepted yet, though.
