(1) There have been a few Security Advisories since then -- which would 
seem to affect an FTP server, among other features.

(2) It would certainly be nice to use those file and memory speed-ups 
that folks have added over the years.

(3) The general concept of "eating our own dogfood" might apply here! 

Well, I just happened to notice, as I don't usually read tbe logs on 
successful builds, and this doesn't show up on the tails of failures. 

I'll also note that the same tools are being rebuilt over and over for 
each platform -- see path above --  which seems a bit of a waste of 
processing time.
