WANTED: Simple text blogging system

I want a new blogging system. Here’s my manifesto:

* All posts contained within individual text files
* The ability to edit locally and have changes synchronized to the website via SFTP (since [we shouldn’t be using FTP](http://stevenf.com/archive/dont-use-ftp.php))
* The automation and intelligence of the weblog system should be local to my machine and written in well-documented common scripting language
* The local software would render the text files to HTML that can be served by Apache with mod_rewrite enabled.
