Apache 2.0 has the ability to support multiple protocols.  There
is a mod_pop3 module available that allows Apache to handle POP3
connections.  It was mainly written as a proof-of-concept though.

I do not believe that anyone has written an open-source FTP protocol
engine for Apache 2.0, but I believe that Covalent has written one 
for their commercial product (correct me if I'm wrong).  So, it is 
definitely possible with Apache 2.0.  

Personally, I'd like to see an open-source version that we could
include in the ASF version.  But, no one has had the inclination
to write one just yet.  -- justin
