And what might count more severe than not being http-based: SCP will
make the need for a shell login, which is in most cases something the
administrator does not want. Though, there is scponly

http://www.sublimation.org/scponly/

with which you can limit the host access to SCP only. In that case SCP
is most likely the most secure and with usage of the right GUI programs
(available for Windows[tm] platform and for Linux, MAC OS probably too)
a very comfortable solution even for the normal user.
