If you mean "does the code really have to be added all over the place"
then Yes, unless a lot of the original ftpd code is changed. 2228 only
specifies how to request a security mechanism, not how the
implementation is done.
TLS does ofcourse not have to be ifdef'ed at all, but should be for
portability reasons.
