I agree with Matt.  This is almost a different task. <interactive-ftp> or some
such.  What it lacks is the ability to deal with filesets.  If the files are not
in your local current directory you'd have to be able to do LCD commands.  It
might work, it might even be useful, but in some sense, it's not quite the "ant
way", for good or for ill.

I hadn't ever really paid much attention to the <telnet> task before.  After a
quick look-see, I see that it depends reading certain prompts from the server. 
Which, I guess, is fine if you know exactly the server you are dealing with and
it never changes.  It may even be good - since you can adjust for any locale issues.

I think a lot of the present users will not want to work this way.  They'll not
want to have to think about the specific prompts and such on the server. 
Another possible objection is how dependency checking will get done in the
context of a sequential series of commands.  As a series of separate targets,
the dependency checking is relatively easy to understand.  As a bunch of
sequential commands sent to the server, it's much less so.

I recommend creating a contribution of <interactive-ftp>.  It shouldn't be that
hard to do, I just don't think it fits into the <ftp> task as now developed. 
Possibly we can put it into the main stem if there is demand for it.
