Unless this has been fixed recently, it's broken, atleast for
open-ssh(d). Openssh's serverside sftp implementation masks out any
suid/sgid bits on chmod operations for regular users. The sftp transport
mkdir method does a mode-less mkdir then a chmod, which doesn't work.
Including the directory mode with the mkdir call would work fine
(tested), but there's a comment in the mkdir method about this breaking
with the sftp server used for tests.

This problem bit me when setting up a central branch for shared
