I still think that in the majority of cases where Ant is used to perform FTP we
are not using anonymous access.  The user is contacting some site repeatedly, to
which he has real user access and getting/putting/updating files.  While I can
imagine use cases for Ant involving anonymous access, I think they are the
minority.  I could be wrong.  But ask yourself why this request has NOT been
made very much, if at all, before.

I think you are talking about a convenience default for what is a rather
uncommon use case.  Instead of this, however, we are beginning to think about
something that would much more powerfully increase the convenience factor of
using the ftp task, for many more users.  That is, separating the connection
from the action performed and leaving the connection live for several
consecutive actions.  So instead of specifying username, password, server, port,
system type, custom settings on every ftp action performed, you could specify
all of these once for a whole group of actions.  Each action would not have to
be a separate call to the ftp task.
