SFTP/SCP with Key Authentication problem on Android

My SSH server uses RSA Key-Authentication however I am unable to securely transfer files between my droid and my server because of the authentication method.

ConnectBot does not support SCP and has not implemented SFTP (yet?).
AndFTP does support SFTP with Key-Authentication but only for DSA.
Astro does not support Key-Authentication.

I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion, I would greatly appreciate any help.

I can't offer any help, but I am having the same problem as Trijicon. Just thought I'd mention it here instead of posting a new thread.

I tried using AndFTP.

Once I get the configs for the server setup properly (problem chroot'ing with OpenSSH) I will research this more.
