    Try "-r", IIRC
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Nah, the -r flag doesn't work with the OpenSSH sftp client (well -- it doesn't work with the get command at least), but it does work with the PuTTY sftp client (which I use when I'm on Windows).

    I find it weird such a functionality isn't implemented.

    Hmm... then maybe use sftp to check file locations and "scp -r" to get them?
