I also need this feature extremely.
This is sad, but currently, I have to give up FileZilla in favor of WinSCP, because I need to execute command like "sudo -u tools.PROJECT-NAME /usr/lib/sftp-server" right after logging in (authorisation under tool account). If I don't do that, I'm authorized under my private account and cannot access some of the files, and also new files will have wrong permissions.


This is standard way to work in Labs/Toolforge projects (Toolforge - public tools hosting of Wikipedia/Wikimedia projects).

sudo is not part of the SFTP specifications.

sudo is an undefined, system-specific command on interactive shells that isn't portable.
