Actually, I believe it's fallen out of favor for both, it seems to have
all but died.  At one point, major FTP sites had installed fspd (such
as taxus, tsx-11, etc.) which is when I installed FSP, but to be honest I
haven't used it in a year or so.  I really wish I hadn't started this
conversation now , but I suppose I'll be less fervent when advocating things I
don't completely understand :) (networking protocol class is next semester)
