Is there a way to update Wordpress without the use of FTP, but with SFTP (which uses SSH)? I've only got my server set up for SSH access (and therefore SCP/SFTP).

Configuration instructions in Codex on Enabling SSH Upgrade Access refer to this tutorial WordPress Tutorial: Using SSH to Install/Upgrade.
