It actually is. I'm excited about donating Covalent's mod_ftp module
which has been used (and still currently is) by many extremely high-end
FTP sites... As mentioned previously, once ERS3 is released by Covalent,
mod_ftp is likely to enter incubation (already rec'd positive votes by
both HTTPD PMC and Incubator PMC).
