Fine, but that's not transparent file sharing. Transparent file sharing
integrates at the file system level and thus makes remote file access
indistinguishable, from the API perspective, to local file access. No
special clients required.

Fish may be a nice front-end (or Konqueror integration) for scp, but it
is most definitely not transparent file sharing.
