rewriting ftpd from scratch? you're keen :-)

i'd be very interested in liaising with you in testing this, etc.
especially anything involved with the UI side of the code.

if you're just going to retrofit stuff in to make the rfc2228 stuff
easier, then ithat's probably a lot less effort.

there have been many times when i've considered rewriting ftp and ftpd
from the ground up; there's a lot of old crusty code in there :-)
