I really sorry, but I've read it a couple of times and it does not make a lot of sense.

FtpServer works now. It does use Cornerstone, and will move with Cornerstone if/when Cornerstone
gets morphed into a set of smaller jars. It does need to eb less dependant on BlockContext
we've chosen that model). I saw that as a no-promemo proposition, with a simple move to the
key form, There could be an extension of the block which is shutdown capable if that's needed.

Given we've also chosen to shove stuff out of Avalon to reduce to A-F, demo apps, comps and
a few
ref containers, it seems entirely appropriate to move this to incubator or other. Rana (and
to a
lesser extent I) have put a lot of work into this and would love to see it go to a place where
gets more attention. This is really good stuff and should not hide amongst demos.
