This time you missed the 'its about name recognition' part.

Why ?
the only reason I have heard you put forward is because you feel sftp is known 
to ssh people.  Isn't an alias for that good enough?  Why should it be the 
first name?

That would work; as long as tla will be listing fish as one of the supported 
protocols.  This way people will not automatically come to the conclusion 
they can't use tla for remote management since their ISP will not support it 
even though they use ssh daily.

Its an win-win situation, I really don't see what your problem is!
