you could do a GPL task on sforge using mindbright and we could link to it
from, even if we couldnt bundle it.

I just run their SSH client in a window and then tunnel ftp, cvs and telnet
tasks over SSH; server at the far end is only set up to accept those
connections from localhost, plus the firewall only opens up port 22 inbound
into the DMZ where the server lives. (this is at home; having 2 levels of
h/w firewall/router in the house does seem excessive but it is nice to
replicate realistic deployment environments)
