As an aside, I'd like to rant that there is no reason for ftp to
exist anymore. Sure it is stateful in a way that HTTP isn't, but
that isn't enough to justify its continued use.
Of course having recently displayed my ignorance of how these
I'm in no position to make such proclamations.
1) FTP supports "resume" for a partial download
2) HTTP has a tendency to timeout on large files unless your httpd.conf
sets an unreasonably long timeout.
