How would I run a script after a file has been successfully uploaded over (a chrooted) SFTP?

I have this working on standard FTP connection using PureFTP

I'm running Debian Squeeze

I was able to accomplish this with ProFTPd & the mod_exec module.

I'd use incron. This uses the kernel's inotify hooks to run arbitrary commands on specified filesystem events.
