scp, sftp, rsync to supportfiles?

For those not familiar with cr.opensolaris.org when you register one opensolaris.org you have the option to upload upto 3 ssh authorised key to the site. If you are already familiar with ssh this is a simple cut'n'paste job. Eg:
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAIEAv8aRUVQTgIqhXDJ/VAHzDEGCd3slBlAUtqjw0FytjkPeLkqPUJAQ2RBS5mN9g8IXO9uzDIZ/no0HW87J1kZhGdy/gKc/7E/z6moVG0ZWzKotfQ+AYGvH5E1WXpIpCuWPqNTEo0RMIvoGR3AwJeznKU1omQwItvQ6j+zU7cGHLZc= cg13442@estale
Then I can use scp(1), sftp(1) or rsync(1) to upload files to cr.opensolaris.org.
Now how cool would it be if that was the case for supportfiles? When our customers register they can upload the Authorised keys and then just use scp et al to manage any files they need to upload. No messing with passwords, web pages or curl. I can't help thinking system admins, who are exactly the people who upload to supportfiles, would like this.
