Yes. If you were interestingly crazy you could do it in EcmaScript. It wouldn't 
be terribly hard (you're just porting stuff for which there is existing code 
that probably looks a lot like the ecmascript you want), but it'd be terribly 
slow. I don't think mandating SSH support in the spec is a good idea, though.

However since you can script with other languages, you could turn there. The 
arbitrary connections thing is just a way of making available to EcmaScript 
stuff that is normally within the realm of other extension languages.
