Please stop top-posting. Now I don't even know what simple things you wanted
to do. libcurl is targeted on file transfers using the protocols, it is not a
general purpose library for all operations you can think of for the protocols
it supports. SFTP for example supports vastly more things than what libcurl
can do with it.

To maximize your ability to use more SFTP features, libssh2 is there for you.
