scp, shell and noux

Hello Genodians

We would like to port scp to Genode to securely copy files to and from a
target. The scp binary works by calling it's counterpart on the remote
system through the SSH channel using a shell. The obvious way would be
to create a noux package and make use of bash. However it came to our
attention that noux is to be deprecated.

Therefore our question: What is the future of the shell in Genode? How
should we go about using SSH and porting scp?

Best regards

Freundliche Grüsse
